Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5157)
"This resource will help students understand what the examiners are looking for and will also enable them to further their understanding of both the language and the context of the text." A Davenport, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"Yet another comprehensive resource! This is an excellent study guide which has done the legwork for the teacher! I took a gamble teaching this this year because the context is one which is so remote from pupils - but this examines the context in detail and provides, in pupil friendly language, an appropriate guide with some sophisticated information. The D grade student could find this useful as well as the A*! I feel that having this as a resource prior to teaching would have cut the work I had to put in in terms of preparation. I wish I'd had this a year ago!" K Chanter, Director of English and Expressive Arts and Ind. Reviewer
"Great work on one of my favourite texts. Comprehensive and very well-written. The language can be challenging at times, but just enough to stretch readers rather than lose or confuse them; hits just the right level for this age range. The learning checkpoint idea is great as it encourages readers to engage with the ideas in the text rather than just skim through.The extension tasks make differentiation much easier, especially as they start at a minimum standard and go up rather than down.That assessments are provided for both H and F tier is super-helpful. Most, if not all, my learners would be fine to work through this in independent pairs or groups with minimal guidance from me, although I would of course encourage deeper discussion where I saw opportunities. Any resource that allows this kind of self-development is a winner for me." A Baiden, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
