I think that this will become a "classic text" of the 21st century. There is some background to resistance groups on the web - and I have holidayed at a farm in Northumberland where the hideout is still there and can be seen.

I have never taught this book to a group of students, only worked with an individual. However I would be reading extracts of this to GCSE groups at all levels but it is a complex text to read and my hardback copy has small print.

It's a book that I would be encouraging stage 5 students to tackle to extend their reading experience.

I have always given my students the message that there is rarely a "right answer" when studying a text and that what they need to do is to interpret the text and produce a valid argument for their own views.

When starting a new text the first homework will be one of individual research (divided between the group - each focusing one a different area and reporting back to the group as a whole) as to the "context" of the text - a "flavour" of the life and times reflected in the work. I may offer clues - keywords - etc - but never answers. I want my students to have enquiring minds - not to merely remember an answer.

only useful if we could see what some of the expected answers might be to assist learning
