Synopsis

Close Reading 11-14 by Mary M. Firth, Andrew G. Ralston

Close Reading 11-14 provides a wide selection of of extracts from novels old and (especially) new, with accompanying interpretation/ comprehension-type questions. In addition, the 'Taking A Closer Look' section in each chapter focuses on a specific language feature from the passage and provides further explanations and practice exercises on that aspect of language. The book has specific links with Knowledge About Language (by the same authors) but can also be used independently of that title, either as a stand-alone classroom textbook or a resource for individual pupils needing interpretation practice.
