Mrs Shannon– Junior Cert EnglishSection 1: ReadingHow do you approach the reading comprehension? 1. Firstly, Read through the text quickly. Get a general idea of what the text is about. 2. Secondly, read the exam questions underneath. Some of the answers you may know already. Highlight what you are being asked to do i.e.: do they want two reasons for your answer? 3. Thirdly, read the text again, slowly this time. Pass attention to detail this time. 4. Start going through each question and underline it in the text. Decide if you will need to change the sentence around. 5. Use full answers in all questions.
