Synopsis

Specific Skills Series, Level C - Starter Set by McGraw-Hill Education

Specific Skills Series Starter Kits (Level C Starter Set) The Specific Skills Series for Reading targets nine key comprehension skills. As students become more proficient, new levels of difficulty can be added to expand their knowledge and understanding. Nine Key Comprehension Skills 1. Identifying Cause and Effect Identifying Cause and Effect requires students to analyse information and determine the effect. 2. Compare and Contrast Comparing and Contrasting helps students practise identifying similarities and differences through stories and pictures. It teaches students to pay attention to detail and then organize the information accordingly. 3. Drawing Conclusions Drawing Conclusions develops one of the most important interpretative skills by presenting students with the most logical answer through the information provided. 4. Identifying Fact and Opinion Identifying Fact and Opinion helps students develop the important skill of understanding and recognizing the difference between facts and opinion through the analysis of information to determine whether it can be researched and proved or if it is a feeling or belief. 5. Finding Details Finding Details helps students develop skills in recalling details from a single reading by taking as much in as possible. The material is structured so the story is one side and the questions on the reverse so there is no looking back for the answer. 6. Getting the Main Idea Getting the Main Idea is designed to assist students in grasping the central thought of a short passage through the use of key question words, topic words, place clues, space clues, turnabout clues and general and specific ideas. 7. Making Inferences Making Inferences is devised to develop one of the most difficult interpretative skills-arriving at a probable conclusion from s limited number information. 8. Sequencing Sequencing establishes the important ability to determine time relationships-the order in which things happen. 9. Using Phonics Using Phonics helps students put sounds and other word elements to work to determine word meaning.
