What do teachers have to say about this resource? (7039)
'This is a perfect example of a ZigZag resource: it is an excellent support for learners who are being taught the text in the classroom. A clear, well presented and systematic run-through of the play which would help pupils in supporting their own knowledge and understanding of the play as they are taught it in the classroom. I liked the series of questions following each scene that took different forms: debate prompts, extended essay questions etc. There is a good focus on the different AOs. This would be very useful as a teacher for homework ideas or for pupils to have extension tasks. It is also a simple, but detailed, exposition of the play for teachers. As an English HOD, this is a perfect example of a resource I would purchase to give to pupils studying this text in order to support their learning. An excellent aid to teaching!' J Hathaway, HoD and Independent Reviewer
I would praise the careful balance between academic style and accessibility for the post-16 learner. Information was clearly presented and there was a good balance between breadth and depth of coverage in the textual analysis.' - T Kenney, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
