Activities 3 and 4 – “IMHO” – students are asked to express their opinions on details in Part 2; students compare how Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope might be handled by today's media to how it was covered in 1980;
Activity 5 (for both texts) – “Fast Facts” – students choose what they believe are the most important facts in both texts and explain why;

Other activities:
A creative writing assignment in which students write a diary entry that Terry might have written;
“Remembering Terry” – students design their own interview questions and then interview and record the answers of someone who remembers Terry’s Marathon of Hope;
