What do teachers say about this resource? (1050)

“This is a thorough and engaging resource. It’s clear, comprehensive and most of all – accessible for ALL pupils. I’ve seen a lot of A level resources that seem to be aiming only for the really able pupils. More and more, we get the full range of abilities in our classes. I think this resource would stretch a strong candidate while supporting a weaker pupil’s needs. The worksheets are very clear, and the other sections act as effective guides for the teacher to ensure full coverage of the material. Particularly handy for first-time teaching of the text! I also really like the checklists of key learning points. These allow both teacher and pupil to ensure that they have covered and understood the most important aspects.” - S Owen, Second in Dept. Independent Reviewer

“It is well structured and covers relevant aspects of the novel. Activities are clearly presented and instructions are written in a language accessible to students. Analysis is presented in bite sized chunks which can be easily imagined presented to students.” - T Garland, HoD, Independent Reviewer
