Since our last issue a lot has happened. The UK has experienced two elections: local council elections in May, followed by a general election in June. The results in May made it look as though a Conservative victory was assured, but throughout the general election campaign, this lead appeared to slip as Labour gained a new-found momentum. This was reflected in the overall result when Labour surprised the political world by gaining seats and forcing a hung parliament.
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
