Features of a newspaper article

What are the main features of a newspaper article?

LEVEL: Intermediate / Secondary

We found some good sites by typing features of a newspaper article into Google.  We also tried substituting different words for features (like parts and components).

HOT TIP: some of the headings in your Google results list may have [doc] or [pdf] at the start. This means that if you click on the link your computer will download a document.

We like this page from Bitesize BBC, which covers all the features of a newspaper article (they call it a newspaper report). At the bottom of the page we found another link to a related page called Newspapers - Key Features, which discusses the key features of newspaper and magazine articles

You can find out more at Let's Write a Newpaper Story!, a site put together by The John Hopkins University. Click on the 'for students' section, and you can be guided through all the steps of writing a newspaper article.

Fairfax Media has an online Newspaper Builder so you can follow the steps to produce a newspaper.

Hot tip: Another place to look is Wikipedia which has great coverage of many topics, including an entry on newspaper articles, which lists all of the features of a newspaper article. But you need to be aware that this information is contributed by lots of different people. If you are using this site, it always pays to check the information against that on other sites or in books from the library.

I think this website should list the features of a newspaper because we had to do them in our homework and when it came for me to do it I forgot them, useless!

Hi Meha, some of the websites had changed since this entry was written, and the links weren't working. Sorry about that! I've fixed them up now, so you should find that clicking on the links in the entry takes you to the information you need.

Sorry you didn't find it useful Sophie :( There's a lot of info on newspaper articles available through these links - our ManyAnswers entries are here to help people search for answers, not just give answers :) 
If you're looking for something in particular try talking to a librarian on, Monday to Friday 1-6pm. All the best with your research!
