‘An excellent resource! I really enjoyed reading through this; it was very user friendly and clear throughout with well placed and relevant activities. I could see it being used in a variety of ways by Language teachers… I particularly like the range of and variety of texts and the clear, articulate explanations and introductions to text types. There are clear references to the AOs and it covers the AQA requirement to explore a range of texts both from different periods of time and for different purposes. It also identifies the key themes required of the AQA specification and indicates when discussion could be developed further.’ – E Stephenson, A Level AQA Examiner and Independent Reviewer
