What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3815)
"This is an excellent resource for anyone teaching the text. The close analysis and attention to detail makes it very educationally sound." S Jones, Head of English and Ind. Reviewer
'A really useful resource which would both enable students to approach the text with a degree of independence and will also inform classroom discussion. Thoughtful and well directed questions will ensure that all important elements of the text are considered, and helpful links to Jane Eyre and wider reading texts will ensure that students consider it as part of the canon of literature rather than in isolation.'V Denman, English HoD, Independent Reviewer
'I am very impressed with the clarity of explanation given for a demanding text which is dense in allusions. I particularly liked how succintly the writer had conveyed the key ideas to the reader, while still maintaining analytical rigour in the reader response questions. The range of tasks available to guide the student through independent reading of the texts should help them come to a clearer understanding of the novel. It carefully balances the need for student to develop independent wider reading with a level of support which will engage them at the appropriate level. Thank you for tackling a slippery text!'T Kenney, English Faculty Team Leader, Independent Reviewer
'A comprehensive resource that not only addresses Wide Sargasso Sea & its obvious partner text Jane Eyre but also offered preparation for the exam and links to other texts. I liked the fact it demonstrated the application of literary theory as well as narrative devices, clearly marked out language, form & structure in the novel & offered preparation for exams. This resource is really good.'P Ault, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'[The author] has been very thorough in her reading of Wide Sargasso Sea and posed a range of questions which will help the hard-pressed teacher to think in more detail about how to examine this novel. The range of questions will stretch thinking and should encourage research. The answers would provide a handy prompt to my own thinking.'P Rapley, English Tutor, Independent Reviewer
