Very excited about such a thorough resource for a modern text Ė will save precious time for a teacher new to the text.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4906)
"Very excited about such a thorough resource for a modern text - will save precious time for a teacher new to the text. I liked the clear layout of the sections into defined areas and the degree of coverage of language features." T Kenney, Head of English and In. Reviewer
"The divisions of the sections is particularly useful and will help students. I think it is VERY useful." C Reynolds, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"Outstanding stuff! This was a detailed, well thought through companion to the text. Focus is given to the elements on the A Level Specification and aids a teacher in starting to think about the best way to approach this text. The sections with synopsis and analysis, especially of the narrative features was particularly useful, as the focus of the LITB1 exam is quite simply the techniques. One area that I thought was particularly strong was the AO2 focus." J Hinshelwood, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
