AP THEME: Contemporary Life
CONTEXT: Travel and Leisure/Lifestyles
When traveling abroad, knowing what modes of transportation are available to you and which ones are the best to use is super helpful in getting from one place to another. During our unit on transportation, students have a summative interpretive reading. To help prepare for it, they first do formative reading practice with this activity. The article is from a travel website for Buenos Aires. The website has been updated since I initially made the activity in 2015 - this is one of the reasons we have opted to copy and paste the articles/readings into documents with the questions rather than having the students go to the websites to read. The current website has changed where the information is located (you have to open a different page) or has updated the information.
The format for the questions is based on Toni Theisen's Interpretive Reading Assessment Template.
