What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5624)
"I found this to be an excellent resource, which prepares students for the more structured and academically rigorous work of A level.The step by step approach guides students gently through the process in a systematic and thorough way, alll the while reinforcing the specification of the AQA syllabus.It is also a reminder to busy teachers of the key points to cover! This resource has huge value and is an all round tool!" J Ireland, French Lecturer and Tutor and Independent Reviewer
"Detailed, comprehensive and some sections are particularly unique.This resource will certainly improve AS students' essay writing. The resource tackles every stage of essay writing head on. This resource will not let the student off the hook, it will keep them working through activities until the concept or structure will have been embedded." M Orr, MFL Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"I liked the way it took students through step by step,covering types of questions, structure, paragraphing, opinions, good phrases to use and even the dreaded subjunctive!. It brought all the information we need to give students into one place. The essay at AS is what students find most difficult and where I find they lose most marks. Essay writing is a very difficult skill to teach but this resource takes students through step by step with exercises to practise each step all the way through. I like the small step approach as this is less daunting for students who have only just come through the horrors of controlled assessments at GCSE!The way the writer takes the students through each section until the end where there are full essays to compare and mark is how I would teach it but it is all here in one resource." K Wright, Head of French and Independent Reviewer
