The work on topic sentences, paragraphing and the three different styles of academic writing, description reasoning and evaluation, are fabulous
The resource helps to meet the very real need amongst A-level students of developing good academic study skills. includes activities and proformas which will save time for teachers and help students to develop much needed study skills. By following the guidance given, students will be taught how to avoid falling into the perennial common pitfalls that many students continue to make when studying, revising and taking their A-level examinations. Anyone serious about achieving their potential in their A-level study needs to put into practice the advice contained in this A-level study guide.
It enhances learning by comprehensively addressing all the key areas that leaders often need to develop. It helps to bridge the gap from GCSE where very different skills are required. the range of practical activities are really useful as it can be a struggle to good universal texts. The notes and exam sections are especially well done.
A purposeful resource which is very welcome under current qualification reforms to assist learners in developing Advanced level skills. It adopts a practical approach to the delivery of skills development and the variety of activities and printable documents are particularly helpful for classroom practice. The text clearly supports learners in establishing the foundations for successful learning and foregrounds positive study habits and behaviours throughout.
Outstanding resource - extremely thorough and obviously grounded in experience from working with 6th formers both in class and in tutor time. I particularly like the fact that there is a wealth of information all in one place. Being a form tutor can be a tricky task, in particular making that time valuable. I feel this resource provides a great deal of useful material for both student and tutor. – K Bell, Long time sixth form tutor, deputy head of sixth form and Independent Reviewer
