LESSON EXTENSIONS

  • Explore the history of recent U.S. plane crashes in greater detail. Have students study the narratives from Major Crashes, 2002-2009. Ask them to choose one and then pretend to be a news reporter “live” at the crash site who summarizes what happened.
  • Show the class Chapter Two of Flying Cheap, “Growth of Regional Airlines.” Using the video transcript as a reference, have each student write two video-based questions and answers that begin with Who, What, Where, When, Why or How. Instruct students to keep questions simple so they can be answered in one sentence. Then collect these questions and answers and use them to play a class quiz show game.
