What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3605)
The discussion analysis was particularly detailed and focused on the text, with line references to allow ease of use with higher ability pupils. I particularly like the ideas for controlled assessment at the end of the pack a big help for time-strapped teachers!J Hinshelwood, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
