One of the most common themes that happen to play at school – in all grades, from elementary to high school – is the c. D. News topic, that is a composition in which we ask to examine and possibly express opinions on a specific contemporary event, which can be a political event, a crime, but also gossip, cinema, music, etc. The composition of this particular theme is important for the student because in addition to “forcing” him to stay up to date and perhaps prepared through the vision of newscasts or the reading of newspapers and newspapers, it allows him to develop a spirit of analysis indispensable for the creation of his own opinions and their points of view on all fields. In this short article we will try, therefore, to understand together how to make a news topic.
Material to read up on: newspapers, newspapers, books, etc.
The theme setting
Before starting with the drafting of the theme, for which it will be useless to “improvise”, it is necessary to read up well on what is its object. In proceeding with the drafting it is necessary first of all to identify with absolute precision the protagonists of the event, and to specify which role they have in the same. The second important point, on the other hand, is the place where the action described and which refers to our reflection took place, and even on this point precision and accuracy are absolutely necessary. It follows, of course, to frame the event also from the temporal point of view, defining it and delimiting it to lay the foundations of what will then be the development of the further elements.
The heart of the theme
After having delimited the action to be told from the spatial and temporal point of view and after having described the protagonists with sufficient precision and clarity, it will be necessary to pass to the description of the real event, through two cardinal principles: the “how” and the ” why “, or how the event happened and what were the reasons that made it possible and from which it originated. From these two elements it cannot be ignored, constituting them the heart of the theme, or the most important part of the same, that around which your subsequent discussion – the analysis and the exposition of your interpretation or opinion – will move. Therefore, it is necessary that, strengthened by a good preparation on the subject, you spread a good description of the event, so that you can then move on to the next step.
So far your analysis must be as objective as possible, moving on what were the fundamental points of your exposure, namely: who, where, when, what and why. Subsequently, if you want to give your theme a more personal and profound imprint, you can express your opinion on the event, your reading of the facts, a commentary on it and above all the reasons that you have indicated to be at the base. Read again several times what you have written, be very careful that your text is the most musical, smooth and clear as possible, or make sure that the five fundamental points to which we have referred before are not only exhaustively displayed, but connect with each other in harmony and above all with logic. In conclusion, by following these guidelines, you will almost certainly deliver a great job.
