GOOD TO KNOW

A Claim, a Fact, a Benefit 

Here's a method that will help you write a good single-point message. It should contain a claim, a fact and a benefit. For example:
 
Claim: The new reading curriculum has had proven success across the country.
 
Fact: It has raised reading scores by a minimum of 22 percent.
 
Benefit: As a result, we expect similar gains in reading competency for our students.
