Close Reading 9-12 Answer Book and Copiable Test Forms by Mary M. Firth, Andrew G. Ralston

Close Reading 9-12 Answer Book & Copiable Test Forms is, firstly, a comprehensive collection of full answers and marking schemes for the comprehension activities offered in the accompanying textbook Close Reading 9-12. In addition, the questions offered in those interpretation activities are available here in photocopiable and re-designed format, with space for answers to be written beneath each question, in similar format to National Tests in Scotland. Teachers are thus allowed the opportunity to use the passages as realistic practice material for reading tests at Level D and the upper reaches of Level C. Also available: Close Reading 9-12 Pupil's Book (0340 91472 6) provides a wide selection of extracts 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, whilst a 'Follow On' section gives the opportunity to explore wider issues raised by the extract, plus ideas for extended writing.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
