What do teachers say about this resource? (8213)

A comprehensive guide to the novel, and offers a wealth of detail organised clearly by chapter, with thought-provoking discussion points and suggestions for essays... The clarity, detail and organisation are all great... The inclusion of suggested ‘answers’ is really helpful too... The resource both supports classroom teaching and independent learning. It would be helpful to guide students through the novel (after a first reading), and then serve as a revision guide. Similarly, it could be issued to students for self-directed study from the outset... The content and activities matches the Assessment Objectives well.

R Shakeshaft, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

Really good resource, very detailed... The questions on each chapter are thought provoking and well written... It has fantastic elements such as context and how we see that in the novel... The layout is great with themes, summaries and activities, enough to keep students engaged... The tasks are really well designed and scaffold well, discussion points, then debate, then writing... Perfect for OCR... Everything you need for studying this novel.

A good starting point for students approaching the text with fresh eyes, with helpful summaries... The chapter-by-chapter section will be helpful for students to complete independent work on each chapter, ready for class discussion... Good for exploring key themes.
