The article is accompanied by questions about what might be inferred from the account, what might be the mayor’s opinion and whether or not the account is biased.
I have used it with several groups of adult learners who were working towards Edexcel level 2 Functional Skills.
The PPT includes links to news videos and is best used in conjunction with the Fact or opinion handout. You could cut out scenarios and use them to start a discussion, which could lead into individual or paired research and written responses. Quizzes on pages 2 and 3 make good ice breakers and can also be used for SL&C discussion prompts.
Aapted from Heidi Griffin’s original version (see below), this new version is differentiated for a slightly higher level learner group and includes sentences to be completed by the learner.

The questions have been used with adults studying for Edexcel Functional Skills at Level 2.
Designed to assess whether students are working at level 2 standards and can follow an argument, recognise bias, distinguish between fact and opinion, etc.
A great way to get students to look at conversations in speaking and listening or to look at humour, irony and sarcasm.
Great as an induction activity for new classes or for ESOL learners to practise speaking and listening. The learners can discuss the advice they would give and then practice writing it down in full sentences using correct selling and punctuation. Students can practise reading the conversation in pairs, complete the missing speech bubbles and answer the comprehension questions.

I did make an answer sheet but I changed it so many times in the light of discussion with different groups that I decided it was best to let them make up their own minds.
The accompanying questions are designed to check whether students are working at level 2 standards and can follow an argument, summarise information, recognise bias, distinguish between fact and opinion, and write using supporting evidence.
