Activity: Comparing Articles (WATER 201)

Both of the articles linked below are credible sources of information. Take a couple minutes to look at both of them. You do not need to read them completely.

Then, with your group:

  1. Compare the two articles, and identify differences in their characteristics (e.g., type of language used). You should be able to find at least 5 differences.
  2. Discuss these questions:
    • What is the purpose of each type of article?
    • Who is the intended audience of each type of article?
  3. Be prepared to share your responses with the rest of class.
