Why You Need It: In “the olden days,” facsimiles of “realia” (real objects / material from everyday life used as teaching tools) were often “reset” on textbook pages, sometimes with changes to make them easier to comprehend or more productive in lessons. Here are a few of them—related to events, products, and services.   

What You’ll / They’ll Do:  

[1] Look at a mock-up of a newspaper “Calendar of Events.”  Classify each announcement as to its intended audience, its sponsor, and its location.  Match its purpose to a situation.  Look at real, current “Calendars,” too—for events that might interest you and others.

[2] Follow similar steps with simulated “telephone yellow pages” listings and ads.  See if such materials still exist, and—if not, what has taken their place.
