What do teachers say about this resource? (10936)

This resource is well-designed. The topics covered are relevant to all specifications. I found myself intrigued and engrossed by the storyline proposed. It makes the topics come alive and also will make the students think about the different aspects of the specification in a more relatable way.

I believe this resource will allow students to apply knowledge of the different topics in a situation they may relate to. I like the range of activities offered (listening and reading activities matching the type of exercises needed on Paper 1 and Speaking/writing activities being more creative and also working on research skills needed for the Independent Research Project).

By making the topics relatable and by enabling practice of different skills needed for their A Level exam, I believe this resource ticks many boxes.

I believe this resource matches and interprets the specification well. It is clear the author has researched each topic and found a clever way to integrate each topic in an engaging way that is relevant to students.

It includes extension tasks, answers and transcripts. Perfect for tired teachers!
