Cultural Literacy: Lima, Peru

Here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on Lima, Peru. This is a half-page worksheet with a two-sentence reading and three comprehension questions. In other words, the sparest of introductions to the capital of Peru and a world capital as well.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.

  1. “Of what” is it the center?

    seems like a very awkward way to ask the question you are asking.

    I think of South Africa and how it has an economic capital and a cultural capital [Pretoria and Johannesburg and Bloemfontein… respectively – anyway the place whose name means Blooming Fountain in Afrikaans] and a judicial capital.

  2. Or beginning them there for that matter [with the preposition].

    [For me prepositions could be in the middle and maybe invisible – but it is using its intended purpose in “going before”].

    And I like not starting a question with a question word.

    That whole “different capitals for different purposes” – it might have the students thinking and imagining a country.

    Or what if the classroom would be a country/kingdom/realm/empire!

    Also – the less that is there or given – the more you are able to think and connect and associate.

    [and thus unlock higher-level thinking].
