What do teachers say about this resource? (7153)

Well paced and sufficiently involving to keep a class focused as they progress through the novel. There is plenty of guidance on additional research that the students might conduct as well as suggestion relating to historical points of interest... The writer has provided an ample range of questions for students to address, and the assessment objective focus of these questions is clearly indicated... The tone of the resource was admirably serious throughout; the writer has produced a resource that doesn't flinch from treating the details of the novel with respect. Their attention to encouraging a close reading of the text, chapter by chapter, paragraph by paragraph, line by line, is clearly articulated in the various activities.
