Now Trump is formally in charge it’s a little bit hard to keep up with the breakneck pace of the news. In the first two weeks executive orders were being produced every day and my phone news alerts became more and more chilling! However, progress seems to have been slowed somewhat by the scandal that has threatened to break since the moment Trump came into office: his connection with Russia. The story is still developing as I write this but it’s worth keeping a close eye on developments to see if Trump is affected so early into his first term.
In this issue, we also cover the Brexit bill and preview the by-elections that will tell us a lot about Labour’s prospects, as well as looking at Trump’s actions on the global stage.
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://zzed.co.uk /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
