There is a lot of background information which will help students with the geographical and historical settings of the novel. There is also a good range of activities from gap fill exercises to translations.
– S Zammit, Teacher and Ind. Reviewer

The best resource I have reviewed in years. The first section really supports the students in researching and fully understanding the context of the novel, it is very effectively structured. The culture based activities are fantastic and provide a phenomenal insight into the Basque culture. The tasks are short or of medium length and engaging. I really like how there are translations into both languages, this is very effective.

‘This is a brilliant response to the changing demands of Media Studies teaching… a really useful revision tool. I liked the immediate results and the opportunity to retake the test immediately. I also really liked the decreasing scale of the points available for correct answers and retakes. I also like the variety of the tasks available as they can appeal to different groups of students at different abilities and stages in their revision process… Students can monitor their own progress and see where their weakspots are… From a teacher’s perspective, SLT are always asking for lists of revision topics, and this does it in one fell swoop. Invaluable I would say. It interprets the spec really well, particularly the exam style questions at the end. If students complete those, then there is no better way for them to revise. I really would encourage all media centres to buy this resource. Terminology is the key to achieving at GCSE Media Studies, and this ensures students have a firm grasp of the required specifics.’ – K Chanter, Media Teacher & Independent Reviewer
