ARTICLE WRITING: HOW TO WRITE AN ARTICLE: CBSE ARTICLE WRITING FORMAT AND SAMPLE

What is an Article Writing?

“An Article Writing is a piece of writing on any social issue intended to be published in newspaper or magazine sharing different thoughts, opinions, facts, records, information or pieces of advice with balanced arguments so that general public and authorities could be alert and try to solve the problem.”

FORMATION OF ARTICLE WRITING

An Article Writing consists of four basic parts:-

  • TITLE
  • WRITER’S NAME
  • MAIN BODY- a. Introduction b. Exposition c. Winding-up
  • CLOSING

Now let’s get into each part separately-

 I. TITLE

  • Eye-catching 
    The first and foremost thing is ‘the title of the Article’, which must be eye-catching. It must focus on the main topic of the issue catching the attention of the readers.
  •   Must be Written in BLOCK LETTER
  •    Must not exceed 4 to 5 words 

Example:

  • EVILS OF SCIENCE
  • LIFE DURING LOCKDOWN
  •  A HELLISH LIFE DURING PANDEMIC
  •   Can be in a single word or one       phrase also 

Example

  •     TERRORISM 
  •     WATER RESOURCES

 ( But it is recommended try to write a more impressive title)

  • Must be thought-provoking 
    For catching the attention of the readers we can ask some questions so that readers might pay more attention to listen to our words. You can make it thought-provoking in the following ways:
  • Can be in a question format 
    Example 
  • CAN YOU ALSO HEAR ANIMAL’S CRY?
  • DO YOU LOVE JUNK FOOD?
  • HAVE YOU LEARNT TIME MANAGEMENT?
  • Subtitle
    (To the main title, we can add subtitles also for making it more impressive. )
    Examples 
         DOWRY SYSTEM- A BLOT ON SOCIETY 
         INVENTIONS OF SCIENCE-BANE OR BOON?
         SCHOOL SPORTS DAY – A GREAT EVENT!

 II. WRITER’S NAME

The writer’s name can be written in two ways:-
we can write the writer’s name just below the title
or
Just at the end of the article at the right hand.

  III. MAIN BODY

The main body also consists of three basic parts:-
a. Introduction b. Exposition

c. Winding-up

a. Introduction

   Write a suitable Introduction of the Issue.

While introducing the issue of the article, we need to focus on the following points-
Try to establish context with a good introduction of a topic.
you can introduce the topic by writing:-

  • A good slogan or quote
  • Defining the topic

(You can introduce your topic by defining the problem or issue. we can also provoke the thought of the readers by asking some burning questions so that the readers might be more excited to read your article.)

b. Exposition
We can also open the different layers of a topic by showing various aspects of our problem or issue.
For making our topic more impressive we can show different kinds of:-

Examples

“I notice daily two boys aged around 12 to 14 working day and night 

at my neighboring hotel .”

-Statistics 

” From the year 2018 to 2019, there has been seen a dramatic leap of percentage in road accidents. They have been increased from 30 to 60 percent. “
-Causes 

“The major reasons behind the road accidents are due to violations of rules of the road.”
-Advantages or disadvantages- 

” Besides having different kinds of disadvantages, a mobile phone has its advantages also if we use it wisely.”

Remember:- It is not necessary to include all the elements. Write only which suits your topic.

c. WindingUP

Wind up or sum up the main Idea by:-

-An opinion

“Children can play an important role in stopping this cruelty to animals.”
-Criticism
“The police in general let off the violence easily after getting their palm greased.”

IV. CLOSING
We can conclude an Article in three different ways:-
-By showing hope
“But I hope people of the modern age would
try to understand the need for their brains to utilize in the service of their motherland.”
Leaving a warning
If we keep on killing animals  continuously in this way, soon there will come a day finding human  to survive for his life.”
Making an Appeal 
” Oh! Children of the world – animals, and birds are crying
for your help, they cannot survive without your support.”

ANIMAL’S CRY FOR HELP

ANIMALS’ CRY FOR HELP

    -by Nisha Tiwari

Man is perhaps the only animal who ill-treats and even kills other animals for his pleasure.

He destroys their natural habitats and ruthlessly kills animals for their skins, bones, and meat, although he is not a meat-eater by nature and holds life sacred.
 
Did you know that counts of animals and birds have been killed, mutilated, or decapitated in the name of scientific experiments, testing, and research? Rats, birds, and monkeys are not only kept in cramped and overcrowded cages but also subjected to ruthless treatment in the cold-blooded way in Laboratories the poor silent souls cannot even express the pain and suffering they are subjected to.
 
Most of them die a premature, painful, and unnatural death. Circuses, roadshows, cattle, and bird markets are also traps for these helpless creatures. Monkeys bears and parrots are ill-treated by Circus people and roadside showmen to make money by showing their tricks, bulls horses, mules, camels, and donkeys are made a carry heavy loads.
 
 Oh, Children of the world,! Animals and birds are crying for your help.  They cannot survive without your support. Listen to their pathetic voice and save them!

Children can play an important role in stopping this cruelty to animals. They must join hands to create awareness for ethical and human treatment.  They can join protests and rallies against animal testing and launch signature campaigns for the firm. Also, they must buy animals product or products which have been tested on animals. They should adopt animals as pets and support animals and environment conversation programs.
