  • Prepare to ace the exam with practice questions, planning
    guidance, sample essays and student-friendly mark schemes for
    both AS and A Level

Plus! Indicative content for all activities!

I was really impressed. I particularly like the fact that the questions are answered in the back, just to give us a little more support. Overall a brilliant companion to the resources I have already built up. The language levels in the section for Methods for Language Analysis were detailed and clear to follow and I particularly like the example analysis boxes which clearly set out how to write about the different levels and therefore can be used as exemplars for students. I thought that the stylistic analysis was detailed and coherent with lots of ideas that teachers may not have thought of and the student activities were well ordered, moving from Language questions, to Active learning and then to Discussion questions to really stretch thinking and finally, the extension questions which will be good for home learning tasks. – M Smyth, AVP Teaching and Learning and Peer Reviewer

I liked this resource. The writer obviously knows the poems of Seamus Heaney well and explains them clearly… [I particularly like] the poem summaries [and] the cross-referencing for themes… The definitions and examples of key terminology make use of the actual poems… The ‘unpacking the question’ and ‘how to pick the right question’ sections are useful – a lot of students find this difficult. – C Marshall, Teacher & Peer Reviewer (Seamus Heaney version)
