Main body, Lists and Bullet Points:
The main part of the article. When printing a list, newspapers tend to separate the entries by using bullet points. The listed items can be recognised, as they do not have a proper sentence structure. What Makes Up a Newspaper Article? What was your article about?
Which newspaper did you choose the article from?
Did your article meet the criteria? Learning Check Each question should elicit a factual answer
Importantly, none of these questions can be answered with a simple "yes" or "no".
In the context of the "news style" the five Ws are types of facts that should be contained in the "lead" or first two or three paragraphs of the story, What’s clever about this technique? Newspaper reports usually follow the
Five Ws (and one H) checklist:

Who? Who was involved?
What? What happened (what's the story)?
When? When did it take place?
Where? Where did it take place?
Why? Why did it happen?
How? How did it happen?

For a report to be considered complete it
must answer these six questions.
The Five Ws (and one H) checklist What was your article about?

Which of the 4 techniques did you find in your article.

Did you identify any other techniques? Learning Check What was your story about?
What is the best bit from your article?
Did your article meet the criteria? Learning Check The rally was organised by Choose Youth, a group of more than 30 national youth sector voluntary organisations Young people from across the country have staged a protest in London over cuts to youth services. We ask the demonstrators why they took part and how the cuts are affecting them. They came from far and wide, and in their hundreds, and they had
only one message for the people in power: "Save our services.“
More than 1,000 teenagers descended on the grand setting of
Westminster's Methodist Central Hall to rally against council cuts
to the parts of their lives that they value the most.

From youth clubs to counselling services, and adventure trips to art
classes, they spoke passionately about why cuts to young people's
services were unfair and disproportionate, and why they would –
not just could - hurt Britain's future.

And on the verge of being old enough to vote, these youngsters
demand to be heard - or else, they say. The protest came on the day
a report by the Unite union suggested that the amount councils in
England and Wales were spending on youth services is falling and
as the Institute for Fiscal Studies said education spending was
falling at its fastest rate since the 1950s.
