What do teachers say about this resource? (8379)

An excellent resource which fits perfectly with the new focus on social and political protest... I particularly liked the way the chapters focused on sections relevant to social and political protest and there was lots of helpful indicative content especially for AO2 techniques in the answers section. I also particularly liked the chapter grid which encourages independent learning... The supplementary essay questions were an invaluable resource given the lack of exam board SAM... The sample answer and teacher commentary was extremely useful... A fantastic resource that no teacher should be without!
