What do teachers say about this resource? (9165)

A very comprehensive and detailed resource that covers all the key areas in a thorough way. There is imaginative use of activities and overall it is well thought through... The teachers’ notes section was very helpful indeed as there is a lot of detail giving guidance on how to proceed with all the different activities, and I found this very helpful as a teacher... The anticipatory plot summary was particularly good for less-able students... As well as the activities for each chapter, the range of activities that explore the different characters is also really good... Some of the activities relating to structure are immensely useful... Overall, this is an excellent resource.

Engaging layout which is user-friendly for the weaker learner and tired teacher! I really like the chapter summaries / plot overviews. I think they have been done in a very student-friendly way which will help them to unpick the complexities of the novel and the Victorian language... I really like the topics for the context presentations, as this is something that would actually be interesting for the students to do and it encourages independence in the texts... I really like the way that it takes students on a step-by-step walk through how to construct an essay. Little details like how to set out quotations can be a huge issue with the lowest ability, and this kind of info would give them the best possible chance of succeeding... I also like the chapter worksheets with the glossary, as this encourages resourcefulness in the students.
