I highly recommend this book. It gives guidelines and suggestions on how to teach literature, but does not impose any restrictions on how and when to use given material. It is also organized in a way that follows the syllabus which is helpful to teachers. English Teacher, Druga Gimnazija Sarajevo What I particularly like is the student responses along with the examiner's comments. This makes the whole approach more realistic and gives students a firsthand experience of what an exam is like and how examiners assess. I have also found particularly innovative the interdisciplinary links with TOK. IB Coordinator, Greece The Oxford course books are the best ever resource for both teachers and students. They are practical, insightful and fully in line with the IB Course outcomes. Pat Hanson, IB Coordinator, Academy for the Holy Cross, USA All of the Oxford IB course books are terrific. Carolyn Hawkins, IB Coordinator, Cookeville High School, USA We have adopted most of the Oxford IB course books for our school. We find them well written, well linked to TOK issues and age appropriate. Sheta Saha, IB Coordinator, Chatsworth International School, Singapore Students

reactions have been overwhelmingly positive. I have found the introductory layout very helpful and user
