On Friday we will start reading a short story by Doris Lessing, “Report on a Threatened City”.
For that, I want you to copy a dictionary definition of the word “report”.
According to such definition, answer briefly the following questions:
A) What kind of text is a report?
B) What kind of language is used (formal, informal)? Why? What is its purpose?
Also, answer these questions below:
C) Have you ever written a report? On what? Did you use that kind of language?
D) What can the threat be like?
E) What kind of city do you imagine?
