N Ashworth, Politics Teacher & Independent Reviewer

"A very detailed examination of the Supreme Court, which goes beyond just the current workings and role of the Supreme Court, and... gives relevant context... accessible to all students and will enable both weaker and more able students to understand the nuances associated with studying the Supreme Court."
R Fairhead, Head of Politics, Examiner & Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4394)
'A well written resource with a number of good examples used and included to help the reader get to grips with the costs of elections... I loved the different case studies of elections and their costs - this is a good lesson in itself for the pupils to understand the costs involved in elections and how they have evolved... To teach a topic such as campaign finance is difficult and for the most part it has been simply explained with excellent examples to use in class... It matches the spec perfectly and a lot of information can be used in exam questions (e.g. statistics, election examples)... I think it is well written and researched and has a lot of good information which students can easily access.'D Taborda, Teacher in Charge of Politics & Independent Reviewer
