Higher English

20th April 2007 at 01:00
Close reading contributes to 50 per cent of marks in the final Higher English exam, yet some students believe it cannot be practised. This book, written by experienced examiners, demonstrates that close reading skills can be acquired and improved. It introduces basic terms and concepts, with guidance on interpretation of questions and targeting answers; then offers a section on examples of comparative evaluation, followed by six practice papers for exam preparation. A separate, photocopiable, book of suggested answers is available for teacher reference, with detailed marking instructions that highlight where students can gain - or lose - extra marks.
