What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5128)
"Very impressed with the way in which this guide makes a challenging GCSE text suitable for Key Stage 3 students. Manages some of the difficult themes well and the teachers notes give appropriate guidance for teachers concerned about tackling these topics with a younger age group. Very time saving and I'm sure would be very much appreciated by teachers." A Davenport, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"An incredibly useful resource whatever the intentions for use are e.g. as cover lessons or for experienced teachers looking to save time. It is also fantastic for people less familiar with the novel or those teaching it for the first time. I found it detailed enough without being overly verbose. I really liked the simple one page worksheet for each chapter with differentiated activities - the cloze, the questions and then the extension questions. There is also a wide selection of activities which can easily be selected from to match whatever assessment areas are being focused on in the scheme of work." P Town, English Teacher and Ind. Reveiwer
"This resource very clear and well structured. There are chapter activities and specific AF activities which make it very easy for any teacher to use. This is a good transitional resource for Y9 students going into KS4 as the terminology used and focus on context will help them develop the skills required for GCSE. The worksheets encourage independent research/group research." K Greaves, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
