The Think Tank – Issue 23: Exam-relevant articles for A Level Government and Politics

The Think Tank - Issue 23

The summer months have been far from uneventful. Despite it traditionally being the time for ‘silly season’, various crises and political flashpoints have been raised over the past few months – from events in Europe such as the migrant crisis and the Greek bailout, to events in the USA including the recent shootings and Confederate flag controversy. Finally, events closer to home have been taking centre stage, especially in the aftermath of the General Election. With the Lib Dems having selected their leader, the recent Labour election having changed the face of British politics, and Cameron guaranteed to step down before the run-up to the next election will be very different to the last!

Unique among politics magazines, The Think Tank is written primarily by practising teachers, and is entirely specification-focused. In it we aim to draw out the exam-relevant issues of events, and make them accessible to students through discussion and exam-style questions.

Every article is commissioned for its relevance to key exam topics. It not only provides topical material for your lessons, but can also be given as extra material for eager students.

It’s also a jolly good read! You can preview the latest issue at http://www.ZigZag.at/ThinkTank.

‘An excellent resource for the students. Topic coverage is very good with well-aimed articles, engagingly written and shorter, lighter pieces too… It is aimed squarely at A-Level students and is written and presented in an accessible manner that doesn’t sacrifice the necessary depth… It is contemporary and easily circulated. I am pleased at the decent coverage given to A2 ideologies alongside USA. Unlike some magazines, I think we are able to use all of this one… It does the updating that we do often dont have time to do and it’s good at prompting relevant discussions in class.’ – G Marshall, Head of Politics and Think Tank Subscriber
