What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6401)
"There is an effective balance between comprehensive scene analysis and exploration of contextual resources that make it a one-stop-shop for students preparing for their examinations." H Jackson, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'A useful resource. This would offer the first time teacher of Streetcar a good starting point.' P Doorbar, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'The summaries of each scene and the teaching ideas are very useful and thought provoking, even though I have taught the play many times. A very useful teaching aid for teachers new to the play and to provoke different ideas about the play for experienced teachers.' C Harvey, HoD, Independent Reviewer
'This is a beautifully written resource. I found it a pleasure to read, both for its clarity and for its close focus on the text. Each scene is presented in segments, dealing with all the key aspects of the scene, the characters, the language and the dramatic conventions. Characters, themes, motifs, form and structure are all addressed in productive ways.' S Owen, Second in Department, Independent Reviewer
