Achievement English @ Year 12: The Close Reading of Unfamiliar Text

By | Copyright Year:2015 | ISBN-13: 9780170355551

Published:08/09/2014
The ability to understand and analyse text is a key skill in the study of English and for many students success in the externally assessed close reading Achievement Standards depends on plenty of practice. The Achievement English @ Year 12: Close Reading of Unfamiliar Text takes only the relevant Close Reading sections from the popular, larger Achievement English @ Year 12 in order to focus on A.S 2.3 (Analyse significant aspects of unfamiliar written text(s) through close reading, supported by evidence). The workbook expands on the skills students have learnt previously by recapping what they know already and then develops their ability to analyse a passage, paying particular attention on the idea of annotating a passage as they read it. There is also a strong focus on noticing the effects of a writer’s choice of words, sentence structure and composition.
