“An excellent, carefully considered resource that really responds to the various weightings of assessment objectives. The encouragement to dig deep into the text and marry poetic devices to reader generated meaning was very impressive. There is an intensity of engagement with Chaucer’s text that is both stimulating and exemplary – showing students the type of close textual skills they must develop. There is constant encouragement to dig deeper for those students that require further deep level exploration of the texts, its author and its social context, while always ensuring that all students can be both stretched intellectually but also safely supported through insightful commentary and explanation.” – M Meally, Head of A Level English, Independent Reviewer
