What do teachers have to say about this resource? (1766)
“Provides a comprehensive study of the novel – lots of excellent work. Incredibly thorough with lots of detail and some interesting tasks. Particularly liked the analysis section for each chapter and the defining of difficult words... I also like the active reading tasks. PLENTY to fit the new specification. Overall - this is an excellent resource... Please pass on my compliments to the author." N Boyce, Examiner and Independent Reviewer
“The resource is thorough and logically structured. Hugely comprehensive." P Doorbar, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
“The resource is clear to follow and provides the reader with the appropriate level of challenge at advanced level. I particularly liked the focus on the role of women in society and the historical links as this encourages the reader to delve further into the social context rather than regarding Bronte's novel as a single, isolated work of art." - J Clapham, Former English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
