The slogan Black Lives Matter, which began to circulate as a hashtag in July 2013 after the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, came to the fore this summer with an explosion of anger, activism and solidarity.

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 an excellent read! You can preview the latest issue at http://zzed.uk/ThinkTank.
