Contains a lot of very good material and clearly sets out a range of reasonable activities that take the reader through the text… I liked the way in which key quotations were given for each section. I also thought that the focus on particular chapters/sections was appropriate given their importance… The educational value of this resource lies in the range of activities that allow pupils to interact with the text and also encourage them to develop their own ideas and responses to the text as a whole. There are clear sections where the various Assessment Outcomes are signposted and targeted which will give pupils a focus for exam performance.
A solid resource which addresses many of the main themes and ideas in the novel, suitable for a generic study of the text irrespective of exam board… I particularly liked the Text as Whole activities… I also liked that there were activities for every chapter in the novel… It covers an introductory range of ideas, themes, characters, forms etc. which all are useful to supplement in-class study… I like the presentation and order of the activities… [The] Glossary: lovely, really helpful resource.
