What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5159)
"I liked the story-by-story approach." V Denman, Head of English and Ind. Reviewer
"I liked it - there were a wide range of activities, such as notes on Hardy's style (brilliant - as language focus is often what distinguishes the most able candidates), diary entries and plenty of definitions of key terms - which is really useful as some of Hardy's vocabulary is quite challenging. I like the language focus of this text, it really does encourage pupils to look closely at particular words and phrases." A Davenport, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"A resource perfect for inspiring ambition in a range of learners. I love the notes on style, language use and vocab that trail through this resource - a clear example of standard-setting and advancing skills. I was really pleased to see that the resource makes a distinction between the different types of background that students need to be aware of for the text - author, literary context, and heritage."
