        The lead in a news article includes the most relevant information,
         usually names, dates, and the 5 W’s and H. *Remember: many readers
         will only read the beginning of a story, so a reporter must include the
         most important information first!

        The next few paragraphs include background information or the nut
         graf. The nut graf includes the main idea and the “news.” A quote may
         also be included here. *Remember: only one source per paragraph.

        More quotes and details follow the nut graf.

        The end of the article should include a conclusion, but no vital
         information should be included here.
