LINKS TO JOURNALISM - READ THESE IN ORDER TO IMPROVE YOUR CLOSE READING SKILLS

Ideally, this will be in the form of broadsheet journalism: articles from the more sophisticated newspapers like The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Herald or The Times. (Not tabloids like The Express, The Sun or The Daily Mail)


Here are links to some fantastic (free!) sources of quality non-fiction writing on the net. You are bound to be able to find something that interests you, so get reading and raise your grades!
