What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4514)
"I liked the level and detail of the contextual information - particularly the historical and social context which is very useful for A Level coursework." L Kirby, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
This Study Guide is superb. It is engaging to read in its own right, and brings an excellent play completely alive for an A level audience. The content covered is sufficiently detailed and the language used is not offputting by being overly formal.J Whitbread, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"Very good detailed guide on a A Doll`s House...The use of foreshadowing explanation is superb as students find this difficult and this resource gives actual examples on which to focus." S Fallon, Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"The resource is thoroughly researched, full of stimulating comments and well-structured. It presents plenty of challenging ideas, as well as providing detailed summaries and analysis of the play...I really liked the crucial identification that Ibsen was not a feminist (so often what students want him to be!), but instead focused on commenting on reality through the medium of theatre. The author adopts an excellent standard of vocabulary that stretches without alienating. The focus on the play as a live text is a really strength of this resource, especially when as a teacher, I am always trying to make them think about the implications of form. The initial focus on stage directions is helpful in that it firmly locates the play as something which is seen and heard and deals with all the resulting implications for audience perception"T Tough, English HoD, Independent Reviewer
'A useful study guide to the play which pulls together contextual detail and textual analysis in a clear form. The contextual detail was particularly strong - a good range of material which would suit both less able and more able students. The questions / activities at the end of each scene analysis will help encourage class discussion well.'H Harvey, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
