What do teachers have to say about this resource? (7623)
‘Clearly well researched and the range of activities aimed at students are engaging and explorative in terms of the required assessment objectives for AQA. I liked the systematic approach – going through each poem in chronological order with a similar approach for each poem. Matches the specification well in terms of the way it leads students through the poetry collection. I was pleased to see that the AOs were linked to questions and activities so it is valuable in helping students to make the connection between their exploration of the poem/s and their exam. Provides students with a common route through the poems and to begin to consider the collection of poetry as a whole in relation to the over-arching theme of 'Love through the Ages'.’ – M Thresher, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
