Now let's be honest a newspaper is just a bunch of pictures and some text, so there is no reason why students at a secondary school should not be able to produce something that actually looks like a real newspaper. Hopefully the videos below should help students step up their game a bit. I have added a couple of graphics that you can use to get yourself going and to use for reference purposes!! click on the images below to launch the larger versions. We have 2 versions of this exercise, one for Publisher and one for Serif Page Plus. Sorry about the lack of controls on the Publisher videos, they will be redone over Summer 2014
