What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5686)
"A detailed resource which can be adapted for a range of students. It could form fantastic revision style activities within a lesson as well as a stand alone revision booklet for students to adapt themselves. With the new specification where the focus is on exams, this will enable students to confidently revise and plan exam questions." L Richards, English Teacher
"I like the fact that it offers a wide range of techniques to cover personal preferences and encourage learners to try out different things, in case one method does not work for them. It's uncluttered and clear - important for learners easily distracted." A Baiden, English Teacher
"This resource is very good with a lot of activities that I think students will find beneficial to support their ability to learn the skills required for the exam unit. Brilliantly! It is generic enough that any specification would benefit from using this resource. I think the tips are specific and very useful. I especially like that context has been given a lot of attention as students have struggled with this aspect of text analysis in the past. I think this is a good booklet that covers the main focuses of the course I think it is accessible." C Marshall, English Teacher
"It is good to have lots of ideas and skills for revision in one place, specifically linked to the subject. I particularly like the breakdown of key essay terminology and the guidance in planning essays as well as useful revision exercises like mindmapping, key quotations, general tips." P Town, English Teacher
