“Thank you for such a detailed resource – I could imagine making very good use of it! The scene by scene analysis is very effective, particularly for the more able pupils… The analysis acts as a form of modelling as well, showing pupils how to embed and utilise quotations effectively. The debate points and active learning tasks direct the pupils’ thinking to ensure a full and rich understanding of the text. The glossary of key terms at the end is excellent support for less able pupils.” – S Owen, English Teacher and Indpendent Reviewer
