What do teachers say about this resource? (10076)
An excellent guide for the A level study of Aspects of Tragedy. Extremely informative for students and teachers alike. I liked the summaries of each poem which draw particular attention to the Assessment objectives and how each poem could address these. Each poet is covered in an informative manner.
The inclusion of Assessment objectives will help students to use the terminology in order to analyse the poems.
There are very few resources for these poems and no resource would include as much detail with Assessment objectives and active learning. The Extension essay questions are very applicable to the course.
It is a comprehensive guide and its thoroughness and attention to detail is impressive.
