This resource helps students develop their close reading skills.
Included are four different texts: The opening of '1984', 'Dreams' by Langston Hughes, the opening of 'On the Road' and 'The Pig' by Roald Dahl.
Each text comes with a worksheet that asks students to analyse what they have just read. Worksheets guide students through using reading strategies and examining figurative language.
This workbook would fit nicely into a wider reading unit.
