World Cup Fever
Write a magazine article inspired by this year's World Cup. If you're not an avid sport's fan, don't fret! This topic can be looked at through all sorts of interesting lenses. Did you know, for example, that there were widespread protests across Brazil leading up to the first kick? Or that Brazil is using drones and robots to monitor the games? Check out the Guiding Ideas below for other article suggestions.
Use these Guiding Ideas to stimulate your thinking about the prompt. Check out the rubric below for more details.
*This year's World Cup is in Brazil. Write an article about Brazil and all its sites and attractions for a travel magazine. Perhaps you're lucky enough to have traveled to Brazil, or perhaps you've done your own research. Either way, we want you to describe what it's like to be in the country everyone's talking about.
*Who is your favorite player in this year's World Cup? Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo has 85 million fans on Facebook—perhaps you are one of them? Or do you prefer a player who is not (quite) as popular? Write an article for a Sports Magazine about your favorite player.
*In 2015, Canada will host the FIFA Women's World Cup. Women's sports have never received the media coverage that men's sports do. Do you think this will ever change? Write an article that addresses the inequality between men's and women's sports.
Or your article may be inspired by any other aspect of the World Cup. It's up to you!
