Great resource. Very extensive and well thought out piece. This is highly recommended for teachers teaching AS and A Level. – R Henry-Grant, Teacher of MFL and Independent Reviewer
Easy to use. It sets out the main aspects of studying a literary work quite well and gives a clear introduction to the main themes. It would serve as an excellent ‘pre-text’ introduction and would also suit very well to students studying at home by themselves. Good focusing pupils on literary terms. This is often an area which they struggle with. Developing literary techniques using word association is an effective way of enabling students to make the jump from GCSE style German, where it’s very descriptive, to the more analytical concepts required at A Level. – C Hennessy, HoD and Independent Reviewer
