Could either give the whole booklet to students to work through independently or use the activities in class as starters and plenaries… It matches the specification and exam requirement exactly. The practice questions are very like the real thing.

The Think Tank – Issue 31: Exam-relevant articles for A Level Government and Politics

The Think Tank - Issue 31

So 2016 is over (thank goodness) and it turned out to be one of the most eventful and unpredictable years in recent memory. However, with the relief that 2016 is over comes the challenges of 2017. This will be the year ‘Brexit’ actually happens and Article 50 is triggered. It will be the first year of the Trump presidency. It will be the year when France and the Netherlands go to the polls. All could provide results that will have a lasting impact across Europe and the globe. In this issue, we’ve tried to reflect on 2016 and look ahead to 2017 across all of the core subject areas for your A Level students, plus we’ve covered the last key events of 2016, including the Richmond Park by-election.

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
