I just want to say what a wonderful resource the Curious Incident of the dog in the Night Time pack is for Eduqas A Level Drama. Please do an extract specific one again next year!

C Want, HoD & Customer

Pitched suitably for an A Level student who has not had previous knowledge of the play [and] Every element of Component 3 is addressed. This resource is extremely user friendly for a teacher. I would use the material in the form of notes to give students about the play and its context. The practical exercises are apt to generate useful notes for students to develop their own means of directing this extract. I particularly like the marked sample essay which shows clearly how the marking is attributed with AO captions.
