What do teachers say about this resource? (7626)
A brilliant resource and teaching aid. The notes explain in detail the context of the play and challenge students to approach the text through a variety of different learning styles. The text constantly references the fact that students should be developing their own concept for the play and offers them a range of different ways to do this
Appropriate for the new syllabus. It addresses the criteria and content for Component 3 Section C... I liked the Section 2 Scene Analysis. This was excellently integrated with contextual information relating to the meanings in the OPC as well as drawing the students attention to key dramatic points that needed a conceptual idea and how to link these to the original meanings... Throughout section 2 there are opportunities built in to discuss and explore the approaches of different practitioners... I thought it was easy to follow and pages were neatly divided into information and activity.
