‘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 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 exam.’ P Town, Head of English and Independent Reviewer

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... 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.' H McCombie, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

''The text choices are interesting and worthy of study.' R Hunt, Teacher, Examiner and Independent Reviewer
