L3 Applied Science Unit 7 - 2x comprehension tasks

2x comprehension tasks which can be used early on in the teaching of unit 7.
These can be used while students are getting used to reading scientific articles and get them thinking about how style and format of writing differs for different target audiences.
These are quite general and can be adapted and used for any topic/article.
I used them alongside chosen articles on global warming and Alzheimer’s from NewScientist magazine.
Depending on the level of your learners, you could also use them for articles from tabloid newspapers and/or scientific peer-reviewed journal articles.
I have also attached a powerpoint containing common misconceptions/errors of students, which I put together after marking a class set of comprehension tasks.
