The Think Tank – Issue 33: Exam-relevant articles for A Level Government and Politics

The Think Tank - Issue 33

Politics continues to move at quite a pace, and as I was putting this issue together, Theresa May decided to drop the next political bombshell. A snap general election. This means students should enjoy the fact they have so many real-life examples to apply their political theory to. It may also prove a welcome distraction from Donald Trump, who continues to dominate headlines with his policy decisions and reversals.

Whatever happens over the next two months, we’ve done our best to keep you up to date. In this issue, we also cover Brexit, the prospect of a Scottish referendum, the NI assembly elections, Trump’s foreign policy, and feminism.

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.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
