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? (3997)
'Lots of good information. I think that teachers would find it useful in planning their work on the poet... I like the intelligence and clarity of the comments. This should allow teachers to be confident in planning and delivering [Browning's poetry].' R Lodge, HoD and Independent Reviewer
'What an excellent resource — simple in format but highlights all the important asoects of the poems. I particularly liked the summary and then commentary on each poem — enabling students' comprehension but also stimulating analyis... Good background knowledge providing a stimulus to engage students. Good ideas in terms of how to approach these poems too. Gives students &mdash and teachers &mdash confidence! I teach AQA B AS but think that this resource offers a good basis for students to refer tofor some of the poems we are also studying — especially in terms of form, structure and language... I would definitely purchase it if I was teaching OCR and I would also like to purchase it as an intro to Browning's poems for the AQA spec. A very impressive and comprehensive resource!' C Hornby, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'This is a very effective resource. I liked the thorough, comprehensive notes on each poem, analysing all aspects of style. The resource enhances understanding of each poem by providing accessible, thorough discussion of each poem. Worksheets are also appropriately challenging. Although the resource is designed for OCR, several of the poems are also set at GCSE for WJEC and the resources would match for these common elements. For OCR this is an excellent resource. Teachers of GCSE would find this resource very valuable.' E Hewitt, HoD and Independent Reviewer
