Here are four newspaper articles that I modified to make into language activities for my AP class, reviewing some of the themes of the semester. Each article has a variety of activities (including a vocabulary section modeled after what I am seeing on the IB materials that we are using). My students found these articles difficult, although I thought that they are representative of the kind of text one might find on an AP or IB exam.
The third article is about the recent discovery of a tomb that confirms the power held by female priests some 1,200 years ago in the Mochica culture, situated in modern day Peru. I have created a power point to discuss before reading this article so that students can contextualize the Mochica culture, click here to download it . There are several questions that seek to compare gender roles between the Mochica and the present-day US. Click here to download the PDF or the .DOCX
