3.en.89 Lorca’s earthquake follow up

I sent everyone a document with  a newspaper article and some tasks dealing with Lorca’s earthquake. We shall be doing them together. This post is to remind you that tomorrow you must bring the document to class.  Print it and include it in your notebook. So far, I have not received any comments, so I wonder whether you’ve opened your mail. Anyway, see you tomorrow and remember that the  dead line for the first five chapters of The Phantom of the Opera is tomorrow too. 

By the way, nobody has found the hidden link between David Lozano and Ladyghost. The first one to find out will get an extra mark.

These are the tasks we started in our last session. Over half of the class forgot to print the document. I hope you will not forget to finish them for next week.

I) Here follow some problem words.

  1. Hazardous= peligroso
  2. Deem= estimar, considerar
  3. Debris= escombros
  4. Tear/tore/torn down= derribar, tirar abajo
  5. To estimate= calcular
  6. Damaged= dañados
  7. Claim= solicitar, reclamar
  8. Tax= impuestos

II) Structure:

A paragraph is a self contained unit. In this newspaper article there are 4 paragraphs. Match them with their content.

a) Government measures

b) Buildings

c) People affected

d) Politicians statements and quotes

III) Now, let’s see if the article answers all “wh” questions? When, Why? Where? What?

When did it appear?

Is it a follow up?

IV) What does the headline refer to?

a) The victims

b) The buildings

c) The government measures

d) Other

V) Who are the people quoted?

a) Politicians

b) Witnesses

c) Experts

d) Other 

VII) Are the sources mentioned?

VIII) Can you sumarize the piece of news in just one paragraph?

IX) Do you think is a good headline? What is missing in the headline?  Why? Why not?

X) You have to choose a headline from the digital edition of El País in English and post it to the blog
