  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5290)
'It contained some good ideas and has useful sheets that can easily be used. I liked the tone of enthusiasm within the pack and the useful hints and tips that were contained throughout. It will help to enrich the educational experience that the pupils have.'A Lawrence, Politics Teacher & Independent Reviewer
'On the whole this resource is quite interesting and quite unlike any other I have reviewed to encountered. Essentially, it puts the bulk of the work in the hands of the student and requires them to take their learning into their own hands and develop their skills of independent thought and study. Most tasks are clearly laid out and well explained and this can really offer some good opportunities for pupils to shine in class and be respected by their peers and their teachers. I particularly liked the following points:a. I am a big fan of this news-review task and will be adapting this to use with my students - it is an excellent and easy way for pupils and teachers to get up-to-date with the news for the week and subsequently build up examples which are up-to-date to use in their exams. This also puts the onus on the pupils to ensure that their review is done properly in order to build up an excellent bank of resources.b. The section on getting Political Speakers into schools is excellent and is a very good template in getting speakers in to talk to Politics students c. I like the whole feel of the resource - the emphasis is on the pupil which builds up their abilities and skills to independently work which is crucial at this stage of their learning and educational developmentd. I also like the fact these have been tried and tested by the writer before they have been put into a resource - this isn't guesswork. Therefore, confidence is built by those who use this resource as these ideas have already been put into practice and done with some degrees of success. e. The resources can also be adapted to be used in groups as well as individuals so there is a great degree of flexibility within the resourcesThese activities can be divided into group pieces as well as individual allowing for the perfect conditions for such an activity based on the class the Teacher has. Some of the tasks included in this can be developed for pupils to use later in life in University and beyond so whilst tailored towards Politics can actually be applied to most disciplines by changing the relevant details and tasks. This is a very good resource which allows ALL pupils to achieve a fair degree of advancement of knowledge regardless of their ability.'D Taborda, Politics Teacher & Independent Reviewer
'The detailed advice makes it potentially attractive to a wide range of Politics teachers, eg from the keen IT-literate novice to the IT-phobic old hand! Some interesting angles on how to approach activities... will focus student on both broader issues in politics and exam requirements... Well pitched guidance to students increased opportunities for constructive learning... Such enrichment activities are inevitably suitable for any politics class, and thus equally suitable for all specifications.'J Hite, Former Head of Politics & Independent Reviewer
