Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • 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? (4255)
"I liked the innovative use of ideas. In particular, I liked the wipe out and fade starters." J Sallabank, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
I really like the way that these exercises encourage focussing on individual words - very useful as this is something I really encourage and needs teaching explicitly - the ability to do this can often be the difference between an A and a B grade
'Absolutely fantastic - one of the best resources I have seen! Great originality. I loved the depth of information and the extension at each stage. I also liked the Lesson Objectives being included, as these would be extremely useful to remind students what they are aiming for in their evidence of understanding. A wonderful resource; a little different and great fun for students and teachers alike!'J Churchill, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'I liked it because it was a little different and I am always looking for new activities in the classroom. I liked the short focus for a starter activity and the various ways they challenge pupils to think about quotations in a variety of ways. I also liked the interactive nature of some of the activities. [The] short, focused activities that really make them think about meaning, so [this is] excellent skills development. It matches the GCSE specification very well — I use Macbeth as a coursework piece and the kind of close reading this resource encourages is something the pupils need to know how to do for a grade C and above.' N Worgan, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
