Writing News


News is an account of an interesting or significant event or development. It can be about a person, place or thing. The aim of News is to inform the reader and capture their interest. It should also be clear and concise, with no unnecessary words or tangents.

How Do Students Get Their News?

The way people get their news has changed a lot in recent years. Many now get it from TV or radio, with others using social media. Before, it was common for students to get their news from their local paper or the school magazine.

What Makes a Story Newsworthy?

There are a number of factors that determine whether something is newsworthy. One important factor is how unusual, interesting or significant it is. If an event is very common, it will not be newsworthy, for example, if a man wakes up, gets dressed and goes to work by bus then this does not really constitute newsworthy information. However, if the death of Mao Tse-tung is announced then this would certainly be newsworthy.

It is also essential to know your audience when writing News. This will help you to decide how best to present the information in your article. Knowing your audience will also help you to format and structure the article. It will give you insight into what details are most important and what is not. Also, knowing your audience will ensure that you write in the correct tone.
