Covid-19 Reading Tasks Level 2
Submitted by Laura Robinson on 29 April 2020.
Functional Skills Level 2 Reading Task on Convid-19.
Two texts based on the current Corona virus crisis.
- Text 1 - opinionated, news article from a professor
- Text 2 - factual guide from Gov.Uk
Questions cover many L2 topics including fact/opinion, language and organisational features, bias and comparing texts. Also suitable for embedded English for T Levels (General English Competencies) and GCSE. Text 2 and its associated questions could be used at Level 1 but Text 1 is definitely pitched at Level 2 and beyond.
8 page PDF with curriculum mapping. No answer sheet.
FE L2.17 Analyse texts, of different levels of complexity, recognising their use of vocabulary and identifying levels of formality and bias
FE L2.18 Follow an argument, identifying different points of view & distinguishing fact from opinion
