    gives you an idea of what you should

    be paying attention to while reading.

  • When asked a question about a line, or section of lines in a passage or poem, be sure to LOOK BACK at the passage.

  • Read more than just the mentioned line; read at least two lines prior and two lines afterwards.


Tip 3

  • Use the PROCESS OF ELIMINATION

  • You will have many multiple choice questions. Get rid of the options that just don’t make sense. By doing so, you will leave yourself with less choices.

  • Write the Title, author and Genre (TAG)

  • Include the question in your topic

    statement.

  • Discuss in detail at least 2-3 examples as evidence to support your answer.

  • Include quoted and paraphrased lines from the poem or passage to prove your

    answer as well.

  • Answer the question completely!
