Journalism Terms Scrapbook Items


Find examples of the following from a newspaper, cut out and label. Number each label, please, with the number of the term. Find as many as you can in groups (ex. Headline, byline, wire service, lede). Any sample taken out of context (that is with nothing surrounding it) earns no credit. So, for example, a subhead must come with its main headline. Each item on this list is worth one point.
