What do teachers say about this resource? (11495)

A really useful resource; the author is clearly knowledgeable and has produced excellent exemplar essays, active learning tasks and persuasive analysis of the poems. There is a clear exam focus maintained throughout... Content is wholly appropriate for the level it is designed for. I really like that the author avoids a didactic approach and instead asks questions that challenge students to develop their own responses to the poems. This resource also helps students navigate exam responses and provides scaffolding for essay writing. As a teacher I would feel confident that using this resource would help to focus my students and target the requirements of the specification...
There is a great range of activities and they are varied... This is a fantastic resource!
