Lesson three focuses on the feature article and the characteristics that make it different from other types of articles found in newspapers. The journalists and editors interviewed in this lesson emphasise that feature articles, while still based on fact, are longer and more expressive. The journalists also indicate how this has an impact on the style of the articles and the kind of subject matter that is suitable. This reiterates for the learners that the newspaper is made up of a variety of texts written with different intentions and different readers in mind. After viewing this lesson, you may want to get learners to read a range of feature articles and write a feature article on a topic of their own choice. This could be used as a writing task for the learner’s portfolio.
