What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4310)
"Excellent detailed and thorough, but still accessible to a range of abilities. In the revision stage of the term, this gives me a checklist and the students can both confirm and develop their knowledge. This can double as a scheme of work and can easily be dipped into for hand outs." E Evans, English Teacher and Satisfied Customer
"A valuable resource for GCSE." E Hewitt, Head of Department & Independent Reviewer
"Comprehensive coverage of the plot, background and key quotations from the play An Inspector Calls...It familiarises students with the social and historical background to the play as well as providing a thorough plot reminder and in-depth analysis of key evidence." F Remington, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer
'The resource is very detailed and thorough. It sets out clearly where the play fits into various syllabi. The assessment objectives are 'translated' into language the students could understand. The 'Historical Context' section is clear and detailed, though not too long. The glossaries at the end of each character description are helpful. The writing in role and text transformation exercises are interesting.'S Mitchell, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'Thorough, detailed and well written. It contains everything required to help in the study of the play. The content is excellent'J Coe, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'A great resource. Very comprehensive and extremely useful. Without a doubt, the key quotes and supporting analysis was, for me, the most useful thing about the guide - this encourages a great deal of close textual analysis in preparation for the exam. ALWAYS USEFUL TO HAVE MODEL RESPONSES AND EXAM STYLE QUESTIONS - GREAT TO SEE THESE!!'C Loyden, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'A detailed, comprehensive resource that will give any English teacher using this text a focused guide to the requirements of the new specifications. This resource fulfils all of the requirements for AQA, at a high level, encouraging pupils to aim high in their examinations. I would definitely purchase this resource for my department to ensure that all pupils have access to a high level resource.'J Hinshelwood, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
