Higher close reading questions on both passages

  1. 1. Higher Close Reading<br />Questions on Both Passages<br />
  2. 2. The final question…<br />The final section of Paper One (Close Reading) asks you to compare the two passages in order to make an evaluation.<br />
  3. 3. Hint #1<br />Always look at the coding at the end of the question<br />The coding shows you whether you need to consider the ideas (U/E) or style (A/E) or a combination of the two (E)<br />
  4. 4. Keep in mind:<br />Ideas<br />Purpose<br />Stance<br />Tone<br />Style<br />
  5. 5. Warning!<br />One of the most frequent mistakes is to confuse ideas (U) with style (A)<br />
  6. 6. Ideas (U)<br />Covers content and argument of the passages<br />Have you understood the key issues, main ideas and the development of the writer’s argument in each passage?<br />
  7. 7. Style (A)<br />Covers all the techniques you will have studied in analysis, such as:<br />Sentence structure<br />Imagery<br />Word choice<br />
  8. 8. Some advice<br />There are sometimes two questions in the final section<br />You must read the final questions very carefully—they are often worth 4 or 5 marks<br />You must always refer to BOTH passages (although not equally)<br />
  9. 9. and a little more advice…<br />Underlinekey instructions/words in each question<br />Look carefully at the code U/A/E<br />Remember you are being asked to make a judgement or to form an opinion based on close reading the passage<br />
