Make a circle of questions that you will cover in your article, and the list of experts that will help you to understand the problem. Please note that you have to analyze several points of view. For example, if you have to write about the results of the exam in your city, chat not only with students and parents, unhappy with this form of examination, but also with teachers, confident in its effectiveness.
After collecting the necessary material, distribute it according to the degree of validity and relevance. First use checked sources and the opinion of authoritative experts. Only in case of emergency you can cite generalized examples of public opinion, not supported by documents.
Develop your own point of view on the subject studied. Articles can and should Express the author's opinion. In this case, you should explain why you come to this conclusion. The author's assessment of the situation is in the process of research and can vary compared to the original.
Write the text. Ideally, articles should include the following parts:
- the lead paragraph (first paragraph of the text), which briefly reported about the event or the problem;
- the introductory part, in which the author talks about the importance and history of the event.
- the main (analytical) part. Here, the author expounds the essence of the problem leads to different points of view of experts on the causes of the situation, the current status of the issue and their assumptions about the ways to prevent and eliminate the negative effects;
- conclusion (conclusions). In this part the author summarizes all points of view, finding their common features and significant differences. At the end of the article can be refuted by the widespread, but totally unrealistic views on any issue or the reader is invited to draw their own conclusions on the basis of the proposed facts and versions.
