Close Reading 9-12 Answer Book & Copiable Test Forms is, firstly, a comprehensive collection of full answers and marking schemes for the comprehension activities offered in the accompanying textbook Close Reading 9-12. In addition, the questions offered in those interpretation activities are available here in photocopiable and re-designed format, with space for answers to be written beneath each question, in similar format to National Tests in Scotland. Teachers are thus allowed the opportunity to use the passages as realistic practice material for reading tests at Level D and the upper reaches of Level C. Also available: Close Reading 9-12 Pupil's Book (0340 91472 6) provides a wide selection of extracts with accompanying interpretation/comprehension-type questions. In addition, the 'Taking A Closer Look' section in each chapter focuses on a specific language feature from the passage and provides further explanations and practice exercises on that aspect of language, whilst a 'Follow On' section gives the opportunity to explore wider issues raised by the extract, plus ideas for extended writing.
