845 pages can seem like a lot to tackle for those interested in the Final Report issued by the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol.
Fortunately for the casual reader, the Select Committee incorporated two effective storytelling tools to inform: report headings and images.
Storytelling through headings
A simple skim of the table of contents’ headings and subheadings offers a fair summary of the report.
Storytelling through images
104 of the report’s 845 pages include either a photograph (usually captioned) or a visual icon. I redacted the report’s text and created a short video of the report’s remaining images from start to finish. Another thoughtful storytelling element from the Select Committee.
Wait! There is bonus content.
After the print-like report was released, the Select Committee launched a multi-media online version of the Report.
Credit to the Select Committee for using different ways to meet the public where they may be to inform.
