Looking at Our Sample Big Story

Who cares? So what?

Is the story’s point clear?

Are there enough sources? Are they good sources?

Evaluate beginning and conclusion.

Consider Blundell's Big Six Questions

  • History – Those roots in the past. Nothing comes from nothing.
  • Scope – How widespread, intense and various is the development?
  • Reasons – Why is it happening now?
  • Impacts – Who is affected and how?
  • Countermoves – Who is fighting back?
  • Futures – What could happen if the development proceeds unchecked?
