Use this site to explore the differences in perception and media tilt between the US and one of Japan's leading newspapers. Access the site, sharing it on the interactive whiteboard or projector. Explain the idea of cultural perception and differences before allowing students to access the site on individual computers. Have students open both Asahi and a popular US paper, pulling up stories on the same issue. Have students create a Venn diagram of the differences in coverage, perceptions and tilt. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here).

This site is focused on providing visitors with an brief but cursory view of Irish pop culture, as well as headline and travel news. Though some of the information may be too trivial but simply let students browse ad nauseum, this would be a good site for teachers to use when searching for information about Irish culture & news.

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource for a webquest or research paper in a Government or World History class. There are only a few case studies thus far, but there is valuable information that could be used to prepare students for a class debate or discussion through the aforementioned webquest. Create a guide or follow-along for students, helping them highlight and find the important information on the site. Use a site such as Mindomo, (reviewed here) to help make easy graphic organizers for the activity.

During a lesson on the impact of the media and bias, have students select this newspaper and another to study from another country for such a thing. Using a venn digram, have students compare the audiences of both papers, as well as framing issues, bias, coverage, and popularity by numbers. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here).This would be a great in class activity before a class discussion of the impact newspapers can have, before focusing on globalization and the similarities and differences between beliefs and politics in other countries.
