Coming soon in January 2011 published by ZigZag Education

4325 – A Streetcar Named Desire Activity Pack for A Level (23)
A Level English: Drama A Level Multiple Boards – A complete activity pack supporting study of the whole text. Ensures full coverage of the Assessment Objectives through AO-targetted worksheets.

Resource Feedback:

“The resource really highlights the author’s in-depth knowledge of the text.”

“The numerous questions are very detailed, probe the issues and provide a close focus on the language and techniques used by Williams. The fact that critical terminology is emboldened in the text emphasises the need to understand and refer to these terms in students’ own writing”

“Also the questions that focus on the socio-historic context, the connections with other texts and the genre of tragedy are a bonus.”

“The resource is effective in linking in criteria and secondary criticism where appropriate. It also had the exam samples and guidance which enabled this to be tied in with a tight analysis of each chapter.”

“It was clearly laid out with all the focused for each chapter clearly identified by sub headings enabling me to read it easily and skim for the main techniques to explore in class”

Feedback on the resource:

‘A brilliant resource with a fabulous variety of activities to challenge and engage students of all levels. I like it a lot! I like how it could be used equally as an individual resource for students to work through (or for teachers to set as cover work!) and as a class work book. It’s great and clearly written by someone who knows the play well. It matches the new GCSE specifications successfully and is also useful as a drama resource. It’s lovely!’A Powell, Examiner, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer

‘Packed full of inspired & creative tasks, making this complex play perfectly accessible for GCSE students.’
