- In magazines/newspapers pick four travel articles and identify what the focus of the article is? Is the article general information/description about a certain destination? Does the article focus on a particular aspect of a destination such as sightseeing, outdoor activities/adventures, dining, nightlife, accommodations, day trips, etc? Does the article have a special interest angle such as environment/ecotourism, spas, history, cuisine, etc. Is the article a service piece with advice/news about some aspect of the overall travel experience such as health, luggage, security, currency, governmental regulations, etc?
- Go through the same four articles, or four others, and jot down the specific aspects of a destination or a service-oriented story which are covered.
