A valuable resource… supports students’ initial readings of the text & supports revision. I like the layout very much – they make the key points in the complex narrative clearer.”
R Burgess, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

Excellent. Teachers are constantly urged – and aim – to cater for a variety of learning styles: visual learners would benefit hugely from this resource. It draws attention to themes & relevant quotations. It leads them to see the task in front of them as a consideration of the novel as a whole rather than extracts of it in isolation… provides excellent coverage of the novelkey themes are covered clearly & comprehensively.”

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3103)
'A great resource. I feel that students would benefit from this resource by the way that every page had lots of information, but presented in an easily accessible format. I feel that the educational value is enormous, mainly because of its accessibility. Presentation & layout was wonderful! [Matches the specification] perfectly! If my students worked with this resource, they would have no excuse for missing important information out of their coursework or exams.'J Churchill, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'Very helpful. The students really liked the mind maps as they allow connections to be made between ideas on the page. This translates into their writing. It provided me with much needed contextual information in a concise format.'J Glancey, English Teacher, Happy Customer
'I particularly liked the presentation of this resource with layout appealing to young people. It enhances learning about the novel and the characters/themes etc with quotes to help the students to relate and empathise. Also enhances learning generally as "mindmaps" are an excellent way of revising. The tasks are very apt and appropriate. 'S Fallon, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'Extremely useful for an effective delivery of the A Level AQA B Literature syllabus; all aspects of the text are covered. I particularly like this resource because of its format. Students found the mindmaps accessible and useful for revision. 'M Maloszyc, English HoD, Satisfied Customer & Independent Reviewer
'Very detailed and focused. Was very useful to see clear timelines for students on the history of Afghanistan. Good subject knowledge demonstrated. Lots of tasks at the top of the sheets to focus students on the particular mind map. 'H Pacey, Assistant Curriculum Leader for English, Teacher & Independent Reviewer
'I liked the visual element and the approach to the novel. I thought it was excellent & a great alternative to the chapter based summaries so often available. 'J Shilling, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'A fantastic, original resource - especially useful for visual learners. Very clear and visually stimulating... A brilliant resource that embraces the AOs and breaks down the text in easy to understand bites. 'C Hornby, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
"I particularly liked the mind maps with inbuilt exercises. Many pupils will find this was of learning accessible rather than lengthy word documents they have to read through. The work that has gone into this resource is fantastic and great for introducing contemporary literature to the senior school."K Jefferson, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'A superb interactive resource... Very comprehensive in content and practical for both student and teacher. The quotations guide you through the narrative structure and themes. Very much a hands-on learning tool.' A Sargant, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
