Developing Close Reading Skills

UFR Code: 789
This book provides excellent individual activities for supporting the close reading of written text. These activities will highlight the richness of the English language and encourage an interest in language generally. The activities provide initial support for developing these language skills: Dictionary and thesaurus skills, word contexts, synonyms, antonyms and homonymns, word order, generalisations, finding the 'main idea' in written texts, backing up topic sentences, word signals, how paragraphs are structured, sorting out relevant information, reasoning and inferences, sorting out fact from opinion and much more! The activity pages are flexible and can be used to supplement work teachers are already doing in this area.
