A very high quality pack which is thorough, accurate and well structured … It really encourages independent learningSupport is provided for less able students whilst challenge activities stretch more able… Example exam questions and plans are really helpful… I really like the critical reading logs – the focused questions mean students can work independently in a meaningful way and the column where they can ask questions will facilitate interesting discussions in the classroomI really like this pack and would definitely use it with my A Level class.

A really excellent, comprehensive resource that details very clearly an accessible way for students to approach and engage with the text... Its flipped nature putting the onus on students to prepare for classes would I am sure result in much richer in-class discussions - and they're more likely to remember content too. A real win... A really high standard resource...
