What do teachers say about this resource? (7763)
The activities are a fantastic consolidation, they work best after you have taught as homework tasks... It is an engaging way to be assessed, the students don't feel like it is too much work, even though they are packing in loads of information... Great as a revision tool, I tell my students to colour them and stick them on their bedroom walls for revision... They are visually appealing, the students like filling them in... Perfect for AQA.
Very user-friendly... Concise, focused and relevant... It is in a format the students can use for both their class work and their independent study... It should make revision manageable and directed towards the exam... The layout and presentation are excellent... The balance of image and text is great... An excellent resource that has been well thought through.
Another excellent set of student-friendly mind maps that really helpfully distil the key knowledge, terminology and theory required for the huge demands of the language diversity element of the course. When the possibilities are endless, it is nice to have this resource to ground students and reassure them... I really like the example analyses provided, but mostly the way concepts are narrowed down to a page or two but still retain a high level of theoretical content, terminology and knowledge. They are presented in a way that ensures students can revise key points... Ideas are presented to allow students to show appropriate knowledge to reach higher grades in examinations because links/connections can be made between the ideas presented in each mind map... These could easily be replicated by students as they provide useful models for how to revise such large amounts of content in a useful way.
The layout is clear, and the summaries of theories are excellent... Each topic area is organised into sub areas, which is very helpful. Key terminology is used for subheadings and then explained referring to theorists, which is very useful as students can easily see the key concept and then revise the details... The resource will be incredibly valuable to the students (and teacher) for their revision. It also doubles up as a handy checklist of areas to cover... Very comprehensive and matches the spec very well.
An exceedingly reassuring text and reference guide, written with conviction and knowledge... I really liked the wealth of information available. I was certainly excited to see this resource, and I think many other teachers would be. It has certainly provided me with what I would want – and more.

A fantastic resource for all teachers and students of A level English Language. This will be beneficial for students and teachers of all levels of experience within the subject as it provides key terminology and more. I like the way it is organised logically by language level and the excellent layout of each mind map, which creates interest. It is a great one-page reminder for teachers to ensure full coverage of the terminology as well as students for learning, testing and revision.
An incredibly useful and user-friendly revision document. It would serve as a useful planning tool to aid teachers in ensuring that they cover a full range of language terminology and equally would be super useful for students wishing to revise and consolidate what they have learnt in class... The resource is VERY clear. Each page is set out helpfully to make what is a large amount of information clear and accessible... The presentation and layout are superb.
An excellent resource that will make for a display that is both attractive and inspiring. It has everything the students need to know, and the unfinished posters mean that the students can have meaningful input that is guided towards their final assessment. It can be used on an everyday basis in the classroom and can also complement resources students use to revise from.

Absolutely fantastic! What a welcome change to lots of solid text. This mind map approach covers all of the key areas, and it is presented in a really engaging and easy-to-access format. Students will really love this – thank you. I especially like the layout... It is really useful to have texts to analyse as well. So often these study/revision packs do not have enough data in them, which is so useful to us as teachers. The resource also has an excellent tone. The language used to get across some of the key concepts is informal and quirky at times – this will be really engaging for the students. I can see myself using the completed mind maps as display resources for my classroom. They look great and include all the key information that is needed. The unfinished mind maps would be a great independent study resource which could be set as homework to support learning in class. They would also come in handy as structured revision materials as students could revise their class notes while working through the activities... A very versatile resource!
What a fantastic idea. These are perfect overviews of key ideas, theories and concepts for A level students, presented in a friendly, accessibly and useful way. I love them. [I particularly like] the way they have been organised into clear topics to enable meaningful revision for students. Several of the mind maps also link similar/contrasting concepts/ideas to enable students to do this in the exam: a key skill needed to reach the higher grades. [The resource] gives just the right amount of key information about each idea/theorist: enough to remember in a closed-book exam where it is more important to link/connect/contrast theories than have detailed knowledge of just one study. It also encourages the use of specific terminology to enhance writing... A perfect way to get this learning across and aid revision... All topic areas are covered, but the resource goes well beyond the theories and ideas presented in AQA-approved textbooks.
Overall, the resource is useful. The ideas are set out clearly. A good range of key information and questions is employed throughout this resource... The early pages make excellent revision notes. The resource sums up the main teaching points... The terminology is relevant, with useful exemplification. The two exemplar texts are useful too. This enables the students to apply their knowledge.
