Task #26: Question
IELTS Academic Reading
A heading is a short sentence or phrase that gives a summary of the paragraph.

You will see parts of reading passages and parts of the list of headings task in the video questions and explanations so that you can notice important points in short time periods.

Do you think it is a good idea to simply match words from the headings to words in the reading passage paragraph and then answer the question that way?

List of Headings

i. Determining the roles of the planner.
ii. Environmental effects of transport planning
iii. The stages of the planning process

Paragraph A

Transport planning can be tricky, especially when there is a limited budget for transport planners and organizations. Transport project developers have different responsibilities and duties that must be performed in order to do their jobs well. This includes taking into account various factors such as the the social and environmental contexts of their work. They also need to be able to manage projects with multiple people working on them. This can be especially difficult if the planner does not have strong communication skills.

Paragraph B

Having identified the roles of a planner, different planning processes can be discussed. Most planners use something called the rational model of planning. In this model, data is collected, quantified and then analyzed. These three phases of the transport planning process are equally important, but many feel that those who are responsible for managing this process perform poorly in the initial stage of pre-analysis.
