The Excel Advanced Skills Reading and Comprehension Workbook Year 5 will help students improve their reading and comprehension—in English and in other subjects—and become more competent, reflective and critical readers.
The first part of the book focuses on reading strategies such as skimming, scanning, visualising, connecting, predicting, inferring, monitoring and judging (reading reflectively and critically).
The second part of the book shows students how to answer the five types of comprehension questions they are likely to encounter during their primary school years: fact-finding, synthesis, inferring, language and judgement questions.
This book has been specifically written for the YEAR 5 AUSTRALIAN CURRICULUM ENGLISH COURSE.
