What do teachers say about this resource? (8471)

This is probably the most comprehensive guide that I have reviewed. There is a very high standard of context connected with both receptions and attitudes. I also found the explanatory notes on the separate Acts and Scenes detailed and very student friendly.

I really appreciated the direct links to AOs throughout as sometimes students struggle to realise where they have to place analysis. I also enjoyed the example sample questions which will work as a useful revision resource.

I would definitely give this to my students to support their reading. It is thorough and linked excellently to all AOs within the spec.

The resource is of a very high standard and includes detailed activities which would be incredibly helpful to students. The variety of different activities ensures that students are engaged, enjoy the learning and cover all the necessary aspects to prepare them for examinations.

There is clear explanation of the topics and how they need to be tackled with examples for students to follow.

The critical analysis section is very helpful as it offers simple, yet effective activities for students to engage with key critical essays.

A thorough and detailed resource that has been carefully considered. A must have for any KS5 teacher of this text.
