#iitutor #English #CriticalThinking https://www.iitutor.com/ Feature articles are a forum for a writer to express their opinion using a fact-based argument geared toward a particular agenda. They use a different pattern than newspaper reports. The Writer The writer is as much a part of the article as its content. Many represent ‘larger-than-life’ people Personal Agenda Personal beliefs are very much a part of an article, with commentary as important as facts Language and Structure Feature articles are a free-flowing conversation, with use of figurative and emotional language. Big Bold Headline! A feature article usually starts with a very short sentence to get the reader’s interest and state the issue. However, this can vary. Argument begins here. Feature articles will interweave facts and/or statistics. Quotes are not quite as important. Usually directed toward a point. May have single line statements to hammer a point home. Continues on a powerful conclusion. No Formal Structure There is no formal structure, and sequencing is ordered by argument rather than events Provides Background Generally will discuss an issue with background and links to many sources and analogies Circular Usually finishes where it begins, and takes an argument full circle Conversational A feature article will address its audience, often directly referring to them as ‘you, we, us, our’ Like an essay, a feature article is directed towards constructing an argument using facts, evidence and discussion. Unlike an essay, however, it features a personal conversation between writer and the audience. While there is no formal structure, it uses specifics and evidence to justify its opinion. It works like a public debate. Feature articles usually have the following characteristics: Use figurative and speculative language Often use humour, analogies or puns Incorporate facts in argument Anecdotal and conversational Often speaks to audience – uses 2nd person syntax (“you”) Use emotional language Feature articles are personal arguments Use their own structure and style Address an audience directly

This lesson links quite closely to the previous lesson, but focuses primarily on various writing styles and content of feature articles. It is important for the learners to realise that magazines need to include articles that readers enjoy or find interesting to read. However, deciding on content is only part of the challenge: writers also need to choose a writing style that will appeal to the audience. Learners are exposed to various styles of writing and are also shown how the style is often determined by content and target audience.

Lesson three focuses on the feature article and the characteristics that make it different from other types of articles found in newspapers. The journalists and editors interviewed in this lesson emphasise that feature articles, while still based on fact, are longer and more expressive. The journalists also indicate how this has an impact on the style of the articles and the kind of subject matter that is suitable. This reiterates for the learners that the newspaper is made up of a variety of texts written with different intentions and different readers in mind. After viewing this lesson, you may want to get learners to read a range of feature articles and write a feature article on a topic of their own choice. This could be used as a writing task for the learner's portfolio.

What is FEATURE STORY? What does FEATURE STORY mean? FEATURE STORY meaning - FEATURE STORY definition - FEATURE STORY explanation. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A feature story is a piece of non-fiction writing about news. A feature story is a type of soft news. The main sub-types are the news feature and the human-interest story. A feature story is distinguished from other types of non-fiction by the quality of the writing. Stories should be memorable for their reporting, crafting, creativity, and economy of expression. A feature story, as contrasted with straight news reporting, normally presents newsworthy events and information through a narrative story, complete with a plot and story characters. It differs from a short story primarily in that the content is not fictional. Like literature, the feature story relies upon creativity and subjectivity to make an emotional connection with the readers and may highlight some universal aspect of human nature. Unlike straight news, the feature story serves the purpose of entertaining the readers, in addition to informing them. Although truthful and based upon facts, they are less objective that straight news. Unlike straight news, the subject of a feature story is rarely time sensitive. It generally features good news. Feature stories are usually written in active voice, with an emphasis on lively, entertaining prose. Some forms, such as a color story, uses description as the main mode. Feature stories are stories with only one feature, but are creative and true. While the distinction between published features and news is often clear, when approached conceptually there are few hard boundaries between the two. It is quite possible to write a feature story in the style of a news story. Nevertheless, features do tend to take a more narrative approach, perhaps using opening paragraphs as scene-setting narrative hooks instead of the delivery of the most important facts. A feature story can be in a news article, a newspaper, and even online.

#iitutor #English #NewspaperWritingStyle https://www.iitutor.com/ Writing for a newspaper embodies the philosophy of ‘less means more’. Journalists write less on the page to focus more eyeballs on their article and save the editor having to cut them off. Writing concisely refers to only writing what is required and cutting out the rest. Journalists do this in order to make their articles as short as possible. It also makes what they write clear and direct. They do not overuse description or vocabulary, and concentrate on simply telling a reader what is important. A ‘reading age’ is how a journalist’s writing style and vocabulary is tailored towards readers. It refers to reading level that a particular newspaper targets. Depending on the publication, the age is generally set at either an 8th or 10th grade reading level. Newspapers articles (not features or columnists) are meant to be objective. This means that they are unbiased. News articles are written in the following ways: Present both sides of the story Written in passive voice Adopt a neutral tone Allow the reader form their opinion Passive Voice is where the writer or speaker is ‘removed’ from what takes place. They have no active role or opinion. Journalists use passive voice to remain impartial and avoid making accusations that cannot be proven. They present ‘facts’ in such a way that a reader can draw their own conclusions. The Story: Monty and Jasper are two boys who had an argument in the school yard. Monty claims that a $2 coin that Jasper found was his, while Jasper claims that he simply found the coin lying in the grass. Sensationalism Thievery and verbal arguments are rife within a local primary school, with two students reprimanded over an ugly dispute involving a two dollar coin. Tips for Your Writing There are a number of lessons from the newspaper journalistic style that you can apply to your own writing: Eliminate wordiness Don’t overextend your vocabulary Be direct Make every word important Edit, edit, edit! Newspaper articles are concisely written They are (mostly) objective Use passive voice
