ESOL Rt/L1.5a

Use skimming, scanning and detailed reading in different ways for different purposes
(i) Recognise that different strategies are useful for different purposes, and select appropriate strategies when approaching a text
(ii) Use skimming skills in order to get the general gist of a text, and to quickly get to know the subject, tone or intention of the writer, e.g. skimming through a book of short stories to decide whether to take it out of the library, or skimming a website to ascertain its relevance to a specific purpose
(iii) Know a range of common collocations and use them to help with understanding the gist of a text
(iv) Take a non-linear approach when reading websites
(v) Read topic sentences, and make predictions based on recognition of a range of textual features
(vi) Use discourse markers to help predict what sentences are likely to follow, signal links with previous sentences and paragraphs, and do this with some speed

A series of differentiated questions based on the famous London underground map. Great for scanning practice and sparking off further discussion or writing work.
