  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3806)
" It was great - really inspired me and I was able to use them straight away and choose which activities were suitable for my class and other ability groups. It was ready to use and tied into the teaching of the novel superbly. I could adapt some of the activities as I ordered it in Word." G Bell, English Teacher and Satisfied Customer
"This resource has provided an excellent basis for our scheme of work. The level of detail and the structure of the pack worked really well alongside current resources. My KS3 students have really enjoyed the challenge and feel great when they understand the text to GCSE standard." A Pattinson, Deputy Head of English and Satisfied Customer
'I like the fact that there is a variety of activities, and also comprehensive notes. I would even use some of the worksheets in other schemes of work e.g. the propaganda devices reference sheet.It is thorough and accessible, and the fact that the writer has highlighted material particularly useful for low-ability students is a great aid to planning. It is the type of resource that you could easily make a booklet for the students from, meaning that they have a ready-to-use revision resource when the time comes.' A Baiden, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'I like the activities accompanying each chapter. I also like the section on language. It looks as if it will help my teaching of this exam text and helps with contextualising the book' r lOH, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'I liked the variety of activities and the fact it was very clear on links to real politics, detailing them very well. I liked the variety of activities, especially the wordles and the research on past political figures. They are helpful in enhancing learning, particularly those on getting to grips with the political allegory. They facilitate both knowlege of the narrative itself as well as the context which is key to exams.' P Ault, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'Very thorough and interesing — taking into account the different levels on which it can be read and the range of activities that students can engage in. I particularly liked the updated parallels with Mugabe and modern dictators so that it allows students to reflect on the more contemporary leaders who have behaved similarly. [It enhances learning by] looking at the parallels with the Russian Revolution; identifying and evaluating the key characters and their roles and influences. It covers all the AOs: allows pupils to learn through research and creativity; to evaluate the writer's purpose and message by looking at the impact of the speeches on the animals; to reflect on the impact of leadership and democracy in today's society.I liked the moodle ideas; these would help the more able and the weaker pupils to access the different levels of language.' S Byrne English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
