Dating Advice from Teachers
One fun and possibly entertaining idea is to write an article about dating advice. You might focus it on dating advice from teachers and school staff. Interview a few teachers and ask them for their dating and relationship advice. If you want to keep the article simple, you might ask for their advice in ten words or less.
You might also include some advice that is not from teachers. If you need some suggestions, please check out “20 Signs You’re Dating Mr. Wrong” and “10 Relationship Red Flags and Bad Girlfriend Warning Signs.”
Teens and Sleep Deprivation
Another excellent school newspaper article idea is to write about the effects of sleep deprivation. Try to find a student who can discuss how sleep deprivation has affected him/her. You also might try to get a quote from the school nurse. For some more insight, please read “Sleep Deprivation Effects on Teenagers.”
Another fantastic high school newspaper article idea is to discuss Facebook etiquette. You can make up your own rules, and compile ideas from students. Read “Facebook Etiquette: Common Courtesy Rules for Facebook Users.” You might also check out “Are You a Facebook Snob?”
