How do you start a letter about yourself to your teacher?


How to write a letter about yourself

At the beginning of the school year, your new teacher may ask you to write a letter about yourself. A lot of students find it hard to write about themselves and are not sure what to include in this type of assignment. The best place to start would be to decide what you want to say first. The letter should reflect yourself as much as possible. What are your interests? Favourite subject? Pets, family? Stuff like that. Try not to jump around too much between ideas in the letter, so before you write it, find a piece of scrap paper and write down a plan of everything you want to include. Begin by introducing yourself, try to be original here – eg is there something striking about you – born on Christmas Day?  I’d suggest that you could start by giving your name and then giving that ‘interesting fact’ about yourself – to get the teacher’s attention! I bet then yours would be one of the first names the teacher would learn! After that, I’d go into paragraphs, dealing with – say – family, hobbies, favourite subjects at school etc.…..

Best place to start would be to decide what you want to say first - then I'm sure there are plenty of people who will be able to help you learn how to say it. But ideally the letter should reflect yourself as much as possible. What are your interests? Favourite subject? Pets, family? Stuff like that. Try not to jump around too much between ideas in the letter, so before you write it find a piece of scrap paper and just write down everything about you that you can think of and would like to share.

I'd be happy to help too. On how to introduce yourself, it might be nice to be just a little bit original - eg is there something striking about you - born on Christmas Day? Very long hair? Favourite food sprouts? I'd suggest that you could start by giving your name and then giving that 'interesting fact' about yourselt - to get the teacher's attention! I bet then yours would be one of the first names the teacher would learn! After that, I'd go into paragraphs, dealing with - say - family, hobbies, favourite subjects at school etc. ..... do get in touch if I can help further.

How to write broadsheet articles


How do you go about writing a Broadsheet article?

A broadsheet article reports the facts and details of an event, without an author's opinion (as would be the case in a tabloid newspaper). In general, they are unbiased but this is often not the case in real newsprint. The idea is for the reader to form their own opinion based on the given information Before you start writing you need to think who your audience is and who the article is aimed at, use the who, what, where, when, why and how format in your opening then concentrate on the important information in the main section of the article The article should be written in complete sentences, using formal language, and be broken up in to sections to help the reader navigate the article. The article would usually be about something serious and newsworthy, including current affairs, rather than commenting on popular media and celebrities. Don’t forget to add a title, date, and author’s name to the article. The title should also be formal and to the point, avoiding puns or jokey headlines as in tabloids. The first thing when writing a newspaper article is to find some event worth reporting on. A newspaper article, as others have said, reports the facts and details of an event.  As you might expect, there is no rising action, falling action or climax – this is not a story, this is the fact. Begin with the most important, critical points of the article. For example, Yesterday night around 11 pm, a man, George Bluth, 41 was shot in front of Parker Square Mall.  Police responding to the scene of the shooting cordoned off a small area near the doors of the mall, and did not respond to questions. Mr. Bluth was taken to the St. Catherine’s Memorial Hospital, and is currently in stable condition. According to Mrs. Bluth, George was walking home from a night with friends, and the police say that he was attacked by several youths…You should progress through the story, and each paragraph should contain less important facts than the paragraph before. As many others have said, you should use formal language as I have above.  Instead of “I asked the police…”, you should write “police reported that…” and so on.

Below is the structure and features of a broadsheet article:

Content

Emphasis on important global/national news, political, economic, social and cultural issues. Covers politics, finance, and current affairs. Often has a sports supplement.

Appearance

Few photographs, A2 size, black/white. Frontpage should be more informative, about public issues. The design emphasizes content through detailed articles in small print, with some emphasis on photographs and restrained use of color.  

Headline

It should be informative, factual, serious language, black/white.  

Article

Formal language, highly researched, factual details, neutral and unbiased, small print. Varied types of sentences. Emphasis on the information.
