Discussion-based tasks!

Throughout: oral tasks creatively engage students with the text, improving key articulation skills and providing that essential assessment practice!

A thorough guide which contextualises the novel and shows real insight into each chapter. I particularly liked the social context, themes and symbols. I thought the tone of the chapter analysis was excellent as the student will feel that they are getting an in-depth idea of why characters behave in certain ways with examples from the novel. A superb resource. – S Fallon, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer (of Wuthering Heights A Level adaptation)

Thorough, useful and tailored to supporting students’ understanding, analysis and approach to the text. Furthermore, the information on Fitzgerald and relevance of his life is very useful in emphasising the need to make links and connections with the novel and author. A very accessible resource. – H Light, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer (of The Great Gatsby A Level adaptation)
