Measure the Content of Your School Paper.
Campbell, Laurence R.
This brief study classifies the newspaper content into various standard categories, and measures in column inches the amounts of news in eight high school newspapers. The four main categories of newspaper content measured were news, sports news, editorials and features, and advertising. News was classified as administration, activities, community, curricular, organizations, sports, recognition, and miscellaneous. Results of the analysis show that student organizations and activities, including sports, are newsworthy but curricular activities are not. High school newspapers staffs should learn to evaluate their own efforts objectively. (DB)
