‘Very good. It would make a great revision resource to summarise and clarify pupil learning. Activities are varied [and] designed with specific purpose and audience. Context is usefully woven through other sections to show its relevance. The marked-up extracts are extremely useful to pupils. They are shown how to analyse key quotations, and what might be considered important/relevant to include in their answers.’
