Synopsis

Prime-Time Comprehension Middle Reading and Comprehending Using Text Types by Lee-Ann Holmes

There are 20 age-appropriate texts from four different formats (fiction, comic strips, nonfiction and poetry) included in this book.The level of difficulty of the text among the formats differs. For example, the comic strips are generally much shorter and easier to read than the fiction and nonfiction texts and the poetry tends to be more challenging.The questions are organised into three categories-Levels A, B and C-which are outlined below.Four pages accompany each of the 20 texts. Each group of four pages consists of the following:Pupil page 1 The text, in the style of one of the four formats with appropriate illustrations included.Pupil page 2 Questions related to the text - Level A (i.e. literal) and Level B (i.e. interpretive). Pupil page 3 Questions related to the text - Level C (i.e. evaluative). Pupil page 4 An activity related to the text.The three levels of questioning are:Level A Literal - The answer is provided in the text.Level B Interpretive - The answer is inferred using information in the text.Level C Evaluative - The answer requires associations to be made between the text's content and personal experience and knowledge.Activity pages These may require pupils to apply knowledge gained from the text, from their personal experiences and, in some cases, to use their imagination. Answers Answers to all questions are provided. Levels B and C answers are provided as a guide only as answers to interpretive and evaluative questions will vary. Teachers may need to assess answers individually and judge whether they are acceptable.

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