What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3453)
"Excellent. It helped us to write a scheme of work for the play and to extend those who needed it easily. It made our lives easier and the students' understanding better." A Pattinson, Deputy Head of English and Satisfied Customer
'Excellent! A complete resource that covers all aspects of the play in depth... I particularly like the way it is broken down into small, manageable sections.' J Lopes, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
<i>'Oustanding &mdash; an impressive, detailed thorough unit I would be more than happy to use. It represents countless hours of reading and preparation which any teacher would appreciate... It sets tasks which would generate interest and enthusiasm and does so in a way which seems very simple and straightforward, but is in fact deceptively challenging and thorough. Students would enjoy working through the many varied, interesting and challenging tasks. Students would not have any problem following this unit on their own. If students followed the unit closely they would have a knowledge and understanding which would enable them to write well about the play in the final exam. There is even a section on critical essays which students could use for any critical essay.'</i> <b>P Moore, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer</b>
