The Mayor of CasterbridgeUnknown - 2011
Putting Henchard on trial for his behaviour enables this recording to get inside Hardy's novel. This audio GCSE guide combines a fully-cast dramatization of the text with the "hotseating" technique of questioning characters inside the book in order to give students access to the plot, historical background and the motivations of each character. It also offers advice and tips on planning and studying for exams and coursework.
