A detailed and quality resource which would prove beneficial to students studying the Edexcel qualification... I like the duel information approach for notes and mind maps... I'd definitely use this for revision with my students. The analysis is quality and detailed and would really help to consolidate learning that has taken place in the classroom. The students I showed [it to] really liked the fact that the poems were discussed in bite-size chunks and broken down into topics for them. K Lindsey, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

I thought the overall concept of mind maps was useful. All the basic information about the poem is contained on one page, and the inclusion of questions to encourage students to think is a good idea... The layout is clear and concise. It is easy for students to follow and doesn’t overwhelm or appear off-putting... I liked the simple yet effective way that the information is presented... This resource gives [students] a handy revision sheet to refer to.
