How to write an ARTICLE

Checklist

Reviews are articles expressing a clear opinion and where in order to convey your interpretation of the facts, humorous ways such as tongue-in-cheek can be used. Articles will also address an audience using rhetorical questions and other forms to create effects or make a statement. Getting and maintaining your reader’s interest is your objective.

You must remember the following:

  • 4 paragraphs minimum (1 introduction, 2 or 3 body paragraphs and 1 conclusion)
  • Give your article a title
  • Speak directly to your readers
  • Give your opinion when appropriate
  • Give examples when appropriate
  • You can use humour when appropriate
