Reading and Analysing Texts: A Companion to Senior English introduces students to ideas about reading itself, the different approaches they can use to become critical readers and thinkers of what they read, as well as strategies for evaluating these approaches to reading.
Throughout this study, students are given the opportunity to read a variety of classic and contemporary texts. By engaging with these texts personally and critically, they will develop their knowledge of literary devices, character, theme, context, and genre. As a result, students will arrive at a deeper understanding of the ways these concepts interact to create different methods for reading and analysing texts.
This student book is a highly valuable resource for students and teachers of Stage 5 and Stage 6 (Years 9-12) English. It includes:
Engaging classroom activities to develop skills in comprehension, analysis, interpretation, and evaluation of texts
