What do teachers have to say about this resource? (550)
“This is a very thorough resource, which comprehensively covers the whole play, while also addressing three quite different exam specifications, at both AS and A level. Clearly written by an expert, it leads the pupil through every aspect of the text. I really enjoyed reading something which has been written by a true lover of the text. It would work very well, both as a learning resource and as a revision guide.” - S Owen, Second in English Department and Independent Reviewer
“This is a superb resource. It is written by someone who clearly knows the material very well and who has a flair for writing. The layout and presentation is great; the style of writing is very apt for A Level students and teachers; it covers all the major areas required, well-focused on the new specs. The activities are excellent. Quick-fire questions are well-written, focused and appropriate for classroom discussion; there are numerous practice exam-type questions and creative activities. It is extremely well-written, well-presented, knowledgeable and clear; its coverage is comprehensive.” - L Wilford, Teacher of English and Independent Reviewer
