What do teachers say about this resource? (7867)

What a great idea. With so much time pressure on teachers, coming up with meaningful homework tasks for the new A level is really difficult. This is a perfect way for students, especially towards the end of the course, to revise for each exam paper purposefully... I ... like the building of skills and the range of interesting and engaging texts to analyse... It covers key terminology but combines it well with application skills, i.e. naming processes, answering questions, but most importantly textual/data analysis, which is key to so much of the examination.

I really liked the range of resources and stepped tasks given. It provides a nice bank of sources that you could just pick up and use without the hassle of spending lots of time searching for interesting articles... I liked the neatness and user-friendly nature of the tasks. The questions are accessible and judged well... It's a great resource.

Comprehensive throughout. The level of terminology builds as it progresses, which is particularly useful. The ideas are set out clearly. A good range of key information and questions is employed throughout... The ... texts provided for analysis are both appropriate and engaging... The answer section at the back is much appreciated... a useful tool for self-assessing or peer marking... I particularly liked the way in which this resource was set out. Students can build their knowledge then move to an exam example... It provides an excellent platform for teachers [and] is useful for newcomers who have not taught the course before... A thorough resource. Well thought out, with excellent details and exemplar materials.

What do teachers say about this resource? (7866)

A comprehensive resource with a high level of detail. This is particularly useful for centres teaching this qualification for the first time or for new teachers of the specification... The tasks are engaging and cover a wide range of topics for both Paper 1 and 2... This would be of particular use in the run-up to exams as revision on individual topics... Requires minimal preparation on behalf of the teacher... [The layout] is attractive and professional. I imagine students would be engaged by the images and graphics used... I would definitely purchase this resource – as an examiner I am very familiar with the exam requirements but don’t always have the time to produce engaging supplementary tasks.
