Excellent stuff! I really like the way information from lots of different sources/periods has been used.

A student-friendly activity pack with teacher answer section. Tasks provide a structured and progressive learning programme to complement the reading of the play in varied and stimulating ways.

Every scene has a wide range of tasks to help focus teaching and study on important aspects of the play. Includes:

  • Quick quides to literary terminology to ensure student’s use the correct terms in their essays
  • Tasks to help clearly identify themes, genre, form, structure and language
  • Close reading and analysis activities to reinforce understanding of the influence of context
  • Key quotations to help students prepare for the exam

  • Includes teacher version with answers!
  • Did you know? Includes handy factoids

Importantly includes exam guidance to give students control over their own exam preparation [for AQA B and WJEC]:

  1. Plan – guide to essay plans
  2. Practise – exam-style sample questions
  3. Practice – exemplar essays with self-assessment tasks
  4. Check – checklists for writing good essays
  5. Check – student-friendly mark schemes

The resource contains excellent activities for pupils to do independently... Good for revision and excellent starting point for teachers.
