What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4402)
'Great coverage of the play - lots of very probing questions on each of the scenes. The introductory PEE activity was helpful in getting the students to develop this approach as standard. The focus on stage directions early on is important in order for the students to write confidently about form. The final sections which focused more specifically on the writer's technique and the exam were most useful. The questions are very thought-provoking and support a detailed and analytical response to the play - there is a particular focus on language and the writer's various techniques which ensures students study the play carefully. It's value therefore, lies in its potential to promote an 'in-depth' response to the play and its characters, themes and dramatic forms.'C Loyden, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
