“An essential for both teachers and students of GCSE Drama! I love the wide variety of scripts explored, the practical activities and tips, the thorough research and numerous classroom resources. It has been especially useful for some of my low prior attaining students who needed the extra help with research and context. Looking forward to getting my teeth into this unit again next year.”
