I need to practice identifying word classes and terminology within a text and generating main ideas from the text.

Does anyone know good places to find texts to practice textual analysis on?

Thanks

What sort of texts are we talking about? Past GCSE and a level English literature or language exam papers have lots of sample texts,

Yeah I just didn't want to use up exam paper texts because they'll be useful near to the exams

You could try searching for other texts written by authors you're already studying? For example if you're studying Of Mice and Men find other texts written by John Steinbeck

I don't think it is the case I think it would be worth attempting them and then redrafting them until you get a full marks answer. As all you gain is experience in analysis and you learn how to approach the question better.
