Impressive in terms of its challenging analysis of characterisations, themes and literary theories... A really strong resource that would particularly help students achieve higher band marks. N Maloney & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (1772)
‘Very comprehensive. A very accessible yet scholarly resource. Contained excellent and focused analysis, particularly aimed at the various AOs necessary. A series of useful questions and activities that were suggested throughout would serve to deepen the knowledge of the text and its context. The reference to key terms throughout was very useful and highlighted new technical terms that pupils might struggle with. Analysis of each chapter and the information on the whole text at the end of the resource was excellent, but as a teacher I really appreciated the way questions and activities could act as extension tasks for the more able.’ – J Hathaway, Head of English and Independent Reviewer
"It is really impressive how many areas the author of this guide covers and this demonstrates sound knowledge of both Forster, the context he was writing in and the literary theories that have been applied to the text. This resource is impressive in terms of the challenging analysis of characterisations, themes and literary theories. There is coverage across all AOs." - N Maloney, Independent Reviewer
