What do teachers have to say about this resource? (2933)
"The referencing to NLS is excellent...it is heartening to see such excellent materials and such a fine example of good practice in referencing to NLS"   P Robinson, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"This resource is extensively linked to the NLS, which means that it is perfect for Ofsted and for fussy department heads!...It encourages understanding of the genre and style of the writer as well as group and independent development of the themes. It naturally lends itself to helping pupils develop their own interpretations as well as aiding them in fully understanding the techniques and qualities of short story writing...The worksheets are exciting and stimulating as well as practical, which shows that they have obviously been tried and tested in the clasroom!"   M Evans, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"This resource is well-planned and easy to use...a good lead-in to the AQA GCSE specification. The speaking and listening activities are thoughtful with helpful instructions for students about how to plan their responses...I like the way the author of this resource has managed to provide so much coverage of framework objectives and of useful English and cross-curricular skills with reference to only 2 short texts."  M Taylor, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"This resource includes a variety of writing tasks that cover different writing styles in an enjoyable way...The lesson plans are comprehensive and the worksheets are well thought out...There are a lot of manageable groupwork activities that I would really enjoy, as would the students...The use of different writing types is important and thoroughly explored in the scheme. The writing also has a clear purpose and audience that can be related to real life situations."  L Hanton, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer
