'I loved this resource. I am new to this component and found its text by text breakdown an excellent starting point... I particularly liked that each of the frameworks were clearly explored and explained for each text... The terminology list is very useful... It ensured that my understanding was in line with the exam board's expectations. By linking to the frameworks so closely, I was confident that my messages to the students were appropriate and accurate... This has saved me hours and hours of planning time!'
