What do teachers have to say about this resource? (1049)
“Thank you for making this resource – well focused on the new specification. There is a clear focus on the AOs. The analysis points are extremely detailed and helpful... The analysis of each poem could easily be handed out to students. Context is a feature that is important in this new specification, with a specific focus on political points, and this is dealt with effectively.” - R Goulds, HoD and Independent Reviewer
