‘Comprehensive, creative, and focused. The mind map activities were succinct and targeted at particular sections of the play, characters or themes, and focused perfectly on the key moments of the play that pupils need to engage with in order to do well in their exams… I appreciated the notes for teachers: it is always so useful to have guidelines to follow as a teacher to support your own knowledge of the text and its delivery. The teacher notes gave comprehensive answers to each of the relevant points on the various mind maps and were an excellent, speedy go-to resource for the time-pressed teacher… This resource is versatile and would lend itself well to incorporation in a number of different ways. At its simplest, a teacher can supplement their own delivery of a unit on Othello by picking and choosing relevant mind maps to consolidate knowledge or develop a flipped-teaching approach. The resource would also, however, lend itself perfectly well to a self-study of the text or a revision pack to support learners and develop their knowledge further… The precision with which the mind maps targeted the Assessment Outcomes was impressive… Each mind map was a resource that easily led to differentiation with further activities and questions that would stretch the more able pupils alongside giving a worthy base level of knowledge that pupils would need… A rich, versatile resource that can be easily adapted and adopted by teachers in a range of different ways.’ – J Hathaway, Head of English & Peer Reviewer

‘It was very detailed and comprehensive. It is informed and accurate and the “Further Details” accurately describe how it could be used. It covers everything… I liked the way it could be used for blended learning and paired/group work as well as being potentially supportive of a single student. The focus on drama as a genre was also good… It would help continuous assessment of student understanding as well as revision work.’ – C Allison, Examiner and Teacher & Peer Reviewer
