The Bomb Factor 
The lesson can captivate a restless class and it’s great for pupils who like to learn on their feet. There’s no time for fidgeting or boredom here’

– Times Educational Supplement 

 

 

 

Under Pressure
‘Without doubt, the session on pressure groups is a highly valuable one for GCSE Sociology students in particular because it directly links to the Power and Politics module. The students really enjoy working in large groups and being assigned particular roles. The session is broken up into manageable parts and there is a clear focus throughout. Moreover, the competitive element also enthuses the students because they are keen to have the greatest chance to win the favour of the ‘MP”

– Luke, teacher from Hazelwick School  

 

 

Truman on Trial
‘This excellent new resource has dealt with the subject matter… in a sensitive and thought provoking way… The resource is ambitious in that it can be used at either KS3 or KS4; it is also cross-curricular and sits well within the foundation subjects such as English. The effective use of primary and secondary resources material brings the subject matter alive and the strength of the resource is that it includes a multitude of participatory and learning methodologies such as the use of discussion, debate, role play and ranking exercises. All of which develop crucial thinking skills of: Information-processing, Reasoning, Enquiry, Creative thinking and Evaluation.’
