What do teachers say about this resource? (10883)

A useful introduction to the text which could also be used effectively as a revision guide as it should ensure a fundamental understanding of the text.

The scene-by-scene questions were helpful in ensuring an understanding of the play and starting to pick up on details for analysis.

The suggested answers are useful.

R Shakeshaft, Head of Department & Peer Reviewer

Very thorough and should support both teachers and students in studying the play.

There is not a lot of support for My Boy Jack and it is an increasingly popular choice in the specification so any resource is helpful.

It was accessible and systematic. Easily accessed. Would make a very good support for students.
