1 REMEMBER THE READING PROCESS? The vital steps to follow to really understand what you are reading. Geraldine Norris:

2 PREDICT 26 th April 2012 Dear Sir I would like to complain in the strongest possible terms about children skateboarding in the shopping centre car park every evening. It is impossible to park your car without it being damaged by these hooligans who have no respect for their elders or other people’s property. I have already contacted the police to make more regular patrols of the area but it seems that they are “too busy” to bother. The parents of these children should be forced to pay for the damage that they inflict on other people’s property. Sincerely J Harris Geraldine Norris:
