  1. Political Bias – Creating a Newspaper Layout By now you should recognize that most news is delivered with a bias of some sort. Your taks today is to create the front page of two newspapers, one with a conservative bias, the other with a liberal bias. You will find scissors & glue in the boxes in the back of the classroom. Pick up a large piece of paper from the back of the room. Use one side of the paper for each of your “front pages.” Use the headlines, images, political cartoons, and editorial topics provided to design your paper. Remember, language and layout are powerful things. Think about which side would do what to sway public opinion in its favor – oh, and FYI, the top half of the front page is called “above the fold” and newspapers usually put what they see as most important there… You need to use all of the headlines and images provided. When you are finished, write in your notebook an analysis and a justification. What do you see in the political cartoons? What are their messates? Why did you structure your newspapers as you did? If you do not finish in class, please finish whatever you have left so we can share tomorrow.
