‘It is really distinctive from other Packs in this area because of its clarity and it being likely to stimulate students who will easily understand it in preparation for the deeper thinking of Advanced Level. This is completely compelling and easily likely to spark interest. It is accessible at all levels but it is particularly suitable for slightly weaker students who will have their learning most enhanced, and also as a very good foundation for knowledge of the specification. It enhances learning because it is rigorous while being very student centred with plenty of pairwork and groupwork, but the exercises are not wishy washy; they are substantive. They are also varied and comprehensive giving a fine introduction to knowledge of this topic but also to historical skills. I think it would also help in bridging the gap towards more sophisticated skills such as analysis and evaluation, so crucial at A Level. It interprets this specification effectively, building up exercises around key aspects of the content. It builds up to two practice essay questions, on whether the English Revolution was “inevitable” and on whether the Glorious Revolution was “revolutionary.” These would really help students in a structured way to start to get the hang of essay writing. I should have loved this when I taught this area, and when I teach it again I should certainly hope to employ it. It is clear that the creator knows how to get students enthused by History, and this really comes over in the Resource Pack. I highly recommend it.’ – K White, Head of History & Peer Reviewer
‘Thought this was a useful resource,especially as there is only 1 revision guide available – my revision notes. Particularly liked the good variety of activities eg timelines, table fills, comparison tables, research, diagrams, before and after, debate and grid fill. It enhances learning by splitting the syllabus into manageable sized chunks, reassuring especially to the less able. Its educational value is that it sticks closely to the specification and there is a good balance between As/A content/questions. It also has extension work for the more able. Presentation and layout are clear – not too crowded. It matches/interprets the spec sensibly e.g. the chronological approach. Liked the way the answer question was separated from the questions-more teacher friendly.’ – L Ashley, HoD & Peer Reviewer
