safe enough for 10year old boys to go in peoples houses and collect money.Oh you could live like a king with the money a daily route would earn!5$ a week was big money then. king

My very first job was delivering papers, my parents 'signed off' allowing me to begin at 11 years old. I made enough money to purchase my very first portable cassette recorder/player. I sure was proud to be able to tell my friends (who's parents had bought them theirs) that I'd EARNED MINE! I carried papers for about 4 years before beginning working in vineyards.

Those Sunday papers were HEAVY Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

Great find, Kilted, it even had my (moderately) small home town. I'll make sure and use this site in my classes to compare what's important enough to be front page in different regions.

Man, the lesson material with a resource like that just boggles the mind! Even a completely impromptu lesson of just picking a headline at random and compare it with views from other countries 'press opinions' and 'letters to the editor' would be interesting. Expose young minds to 'practical ethnocentrism' and open their minds to 'foreign opinion'.

Lots of material there for young minds.

I start every class (well, almost every class) with 5-10 minuites of world news. I use Google Earth and other maps to show where it occurred, what's around it (impacting or impacted by the events), and then find an English version of that countries major newspaper to see their take on the event. The beauty of the discipline I love is the holistic connection to everything, absolutely everything on earth. Everything happens someplace, for a reason, and with consequences.
