Now you're getting it! Now we will look at how to search for stories that convey a certain emotion or perspective on a particular subject.

First, type in your subject, in this case:

("world bank" "red cross" "world vision")

Second, type the word


Third, choose the emotion/perspective you wish to search for by selecting any list of words from the list below and copying it into you search bar after the "and".

The "and" between your two word lists is very important! Otherwise it will match either your topical words OR the emotional/perspective words.
