Critical reading

Critical reading means that a reader applies certain processes, models, questions, and theories that result in enhanced clarity and comprehension. There is more involved, both in effort and understanding, in a critical reading than in a mere "skimming" of the text. What is the difference? If a reader "skims" the text, superficial characteristics and information are as far as the reader goes. A critical reading gets at "deep structure" (if there is such a thing apart from the superficial text!), that is, logical consistency, tone, organization, and a number of other very important sounding terms.

The above printable, downloadable handout is intended for at Advanced (C1) level. It is valuable for consolidating Adjectives to describe feelings / mood / tone in English, and is useful for honing your pupils' Reading skills. It focuses on the topic and words of Politics, voting, elections.
