Included are:
2-one page reading texts of over 500 words detailing Terry’s life and his legacy.
An activity designed for each of the texts and a third activity that requires both texts be read.

Activity 2 – “IMHO” – students are asked to express their opinions on details in Part 2;
Activity 3 – “Fast Facts” – students choose what they believe are the most important facts in both texts and explain why;

Other activities (not related to the texts):
“Inner Dialogue” - a creative writing assignment in which students describe what Terry Fox might have been thinking as he ran;
“Remembering Terry” – students design their own interview questions and then interview and record the answers of someone who remembers Terry’s Marathon of Hope;
