Synopsis

Higher English Close Reading Answers and Marking Schemes 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! The core student 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. This book of suggested answers offers extremely detailed marking instructions to use alongside the student book, that highlight where students can gain - or lose - the extra marks that influence grade awards. This book is photocopiable within the institution of purchase.
