What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3746)
"Excellent, the analysis was of high quality and the questions/activities provided a guided reading approach to the text." J Wright, English Teacher and Satisfied Customer
This is a really good resource: it examines a range of different, relevant aspects of the novel. I was particularly pleased with the section on 'How to Answer Exam' questions: this type of insight is becoming increasingly important because of the very different nature of the 2010 examinations. A/A* students would find much here that illuminates their thinking and understanding of the novel. S Richardson, Head of English and Ind. Reviewer
'This resource provides succinct character summaries and relevant explanation of the gothic tradition, which is written very much with a GCSE audience in mind. The chapter summaries, analyses and questions would be useful in the classroom setting. The essay style questions at the end of the resource are clear and break down essay plans for students in a neat way. The sample exam question and answer is really very useful.'S Alsop, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
