Reading exercise

Holy Willie's Prayer by Robert Burns

Learners must read or listen to the excerpt and answer the questions by selecting the correct answer.

This activity is suitable for learners studying Burns Poetry as their set text for Higher English. The final (offline) activity is an example of the ‘10 mark’ question in the Higher English Critical Reading exam.

Learners working towards the Scots Language Award at level 6 may also find this activity useful in demonstrating their understanding of a detailed and complex text.
