What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6311)

Really liked the flashcard activity. The case study grids are extremely beneficial and worthwhile for teachers and students. My students appreciate a clear and concise case grid which shows them exactly what they need to know for the exam - it is very clear within this resource. – L Rainford, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

The resource is overall very useful and appropriate to the needs of A2 students who struggle with learning cases, although these are vital for them to bring into their answers and achieve the highest marks in a question. The completed Case Study Grids could be used in a unit revision pack. A very useful and well-organised practical resource for students and teachers and one which is certainly needed. - P Emerton, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

This resources is good as it covers a lot of cases and can be adapted to different teachers who use different cases. -M Ahmed, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

'I really liked the case cards support pack... The cards provide students with a resource that they can create themselves but also use multiple times, whilst at home and in school. The ability to project the names of the cards is also very useful. Matches the specification very well - all relevant cases are highlighted.' E Skinner, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6143)

The resource is of a high quality. It includes a comprehensive list of key cases, far beyond those suggested by the textbooks. This can act as both a teacher guide to some of the lesser known cases, but is also very effective for student revision and embedding case understanding across the whole course. I particularly like the fact that on some of the sheets, the case details are already filled out. I often find that students can concern themselves too much with a narrative retelling of the case rather than concentrating on the legal principle. The fact that these boxes are already completed means that students have to place more consideration on to the legal principles and will as a result find that these are more embedded. I like the range of case activities which i think could translate well as starters, plenaries or quick revision exercises. – J Pike, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

I thought that this was an excellent resource. There was a lot of theory and condensed notes which is ideal for self-study and revision. – J Whatford, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

I thought that the grid of cases is an easy and very effective way for students to remember facts and more importantly, the significance of the case.... The resource also allows students to sift through info quickly, which could save valuable time when revising....gives extra cases that are not necessarily cited in the recommended text book. - S Ansah, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

This resource would be very useful - students are often overwhelmed by cases. this sorts them into categories/topics well. This enables teachers to pick and choose relevant cases and enables students to learn them. It also includes up to date cases that textbooks do not have (e.g. Intoxication and Loss of Control). - J Conway, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

Clear, concise and useful. The structure is very clear which is useful, it is very valuable to have a brief outline of the significance, often this is all the students need to know for an exam. - E Skinner Head of Department and Independent Reviewer

This resource would be helpful for revision and as there are so many criminal cases to remember for LAW03. It would particularly support weaker students who can’t recall the principles of cases easily. - R Elias-Jones, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
