Synopsis

Higher English Close Reading by Ann Bridges, Colin Eckford

Close Reading for Higher English offers guidance in one of the most important areas of Higher English. Close Reading contributes to 50% of marks in the final examination, yet some students believe that it is a skill that can not be practised! This book, written by two experienced teachers and examiners, shows that such practice offers the best chance of success and demonstrates that close reading for Higher English is a skill that can be acquired and improved. It introduces the basic terms and concepts that lie behind success (with guidance on interpretation of questions and targeting answers); then offers a section on examples of Comparative Evaluation (the 'Questions on both Passages'), an area that is often a source of difficulty for many candidates; followed by six practice papers for exam preparation. A separate, photocopiable, book of suggested answers is available for teacher reference, offering extremely detailed marking instructions that highlight where students can gain - or lose - the extra marks that influence grade awards.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
