What do teachers say about this resource? (6766, 6909)

This resource was an absolute lifesaver! It's detailed and comprehensive across the collection with some really interesting points of analysis and detailed context. There is so little out there on Sheers and Skirrid Hill so this was incredibly helpful. I really liked the comparisons between the poems themselves as this helped me further understand what holds the poems together beyond 'Wales'. It's concise and detailed, with clear comments on how to address the AOs. It is incredibly reasonably priced for the sheer wealth of information available, written in a format that is both helpful for weaker students and challenging for the more able.
