What do teachers say about this resource? (10002)

I really enjoyed this resource... It delves into each important aspect of the play to allow students to revise key characters, themes and scenes with ease... I would feel comfortable using this with a vast range of students and not worry they wouldn’t be able to access it... I think this would enable a range of students to revise effectively for assessments, providing them with relevant information to allow them to access all the key areas needed for the examinations. Often, it’s a struggle of what to provide students with to help them prepare – this answers this problem!

T Hollins, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

Comprehensive. I loved how there were different sections for each of the themes, characters, plot etc. This shows the author’s great attention to detail. It’s also an indication of just how thoroughly the author knows the AQA exam content. Incredibly detailed and impressive... I liked the questions after each section and how each part of the play had been broken down into smaller digestible sections. This makes revision much easier for students to handle... could work as an aid for teachers holding revision sessions whereby parts of the resource could be withheld and then gradually shared.

The information included in the resource is helpful and suited to the text... Detailed cards with relevant information... Useful as a form of revision in terms of character and plot for students to be able to flick through and I liked the coverage of characters, plot details and themes, as well as the context cards – particularly the reception over time one as it prompts students to think about audience responses changing and how responses might be different. I also like the fact there are examples of interpretations for students to be able to look at if they are uncertain... The educational value of this resource is good as it could enhance the learning for the students with revision of the plot and key character moments and explanations of the themes present in the play.

J Murdoch, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

A useful, resource for teachers... The question cards on the key characters useful because [they] could be used as a starter or in pair or group work with students coming up with their understanding and ideas, as well as finding examples from the text... Like the character cards, the Key Events cards also help to enhance learning as they can be used to refresh memory and embed understanding of the text and examples to use when responding in the exam. They are set out chronologically which is helpful, but one could also ‘mix and match’ the character, key events and themes cards and get students to make links in this way.

M Linney, Teacher and Peer Reviewer

Good... I like the way the cards are divided into characters, themes and so on... It is a useful resource for students who are revising the text... Very useful for teachers who are new to the text.

A Powell, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

Well-prepared and knowledgeable. Carefully sectioned, so easy for students to use... I liked how logical it was and well informed... Would work well as an information retrieval tool for revision with students either in class or independently.
