Used with an IB class to help them develop reading and discussion skills. Stimulus for Diploma Higher Level Paper One, as well as Interactive and Individual Oral assessments. Great range and high standard of resources.

Fantastic resource just started using it with my KS4's.I'll give more feedback when I've trialed the resources in class. International students need these sort of differentiated tasks so thanks- very thoughtfully put together.

Invaluable! This is a brilliant resource and has saved many hours of planning and preparation, which I am eternally grateful for. Please can you provide more packs for teachers to use when delivering the new GSCE English Language and Literature exams ? They are clear, concise, suitably challenging and use a good variety of texts.

Wonderful resource. I teach British lit in the US, and having sources from a different perspective is a great benefit to my class. I am eager to use the materials this fall. Thank you!
