• A specialized approach to news reporting that spotlights the acknowledgment of social issues.
  • For a story to be considered a solutions piece it must not only identify the problem it has to provide detailed solution that is anchored in unmistakable evidence for why that solution may or may not work.
  • Solution stories can take multiple forms but all solution stories share the same key ideas: identify the root problem, make the response or responses to that problem the focal point, show evidence of the impact that those response or responses, how and why the responses are working.
  • Solution stories focus on the HOW not on who.
  • Solutions writing assesses reactions and responses that are working or not working today in contrary to solutions that are untested.
  • You should research of your story idea very truly even if it’s want to subject that you’re not too familiar with or uncomfortable with.
  • When you’re doing your research take in to account any potential bias around the data or you interact with.
  • It is critical that you do not create a hero tone in your story stay away from “Hero Worshiping”.
  • Be okay with not knowing every possible outcome, nothing is ever going to work 100 present of the time.
  • The end goal of this approach is to show the public a more complete view of these social issues.
