What do teachers say about this resource? (10286)

It is excellent and will really help teachers new to this area - it is very thorough and could act as an independent study unit.

It would be particularly useful for students on the lower end of the ability spectrum to supplement classroom teaching.

It could help an inexperienced teacher work through the text and also be given to students as an independent study unit in the event of lockdown!

It has an accessible voice and I liked the idea of more creative responses which were very imaginative.

I would give students the sheets to work on either before or after a lesson - it would make excellent preparation for discussion and debate or work as a revision aid for independent study.
