David Wares chooses resources

6th July 2007 at 01:00
Book - Literature, Criticism and Style: a Practical Guide to Advanced Level English Literature by Steven Croft and Helen Cross. Oxford University Press pound;16.50

This comes closer than most books to presenting a solid foundation for the study of literature: structured, informed and readable.

Resource - Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, 21 New Globe Walk, Bankside, London SE1 9DT. Visit www.shakespeares-globe.org Call 020 7902 1400

Every English teacher should visit this place at least once, just to remind themselves that Shakespeare wrote for the gallery and the groundlings, not academics. Get past the heritage factor and enjoy the action.

Website - www.short-stories.co.uk Do sites like this represent the death of publishing? Hardly. Classic stories and quality new works, online.
