We've got another fantastic interactive quiz format for you. This one will help test how much your students have taken in over these first few weeks of the AS course. This activity called 'Four Words' shows students the first four words of a definition of a key phrase. Students must decide if they think they know what the key phrase is (and earn maximum points) or wait to see the rest of the definition and earn lower points. Of course, if they get the answer wrong they get zero points! 15 key phrases are tested.
The website Vote for Policies might help students and teachers in the run up to May's General Election.

One delegate, Jon Neil from RGS in Newcastle, created his own version on Ideologies and has allowed us to share this.The activity takes a different twist on the classical multi-choice quiz format. Four answers are shown on screen but there is no question attached. Instead, students must work out which 3 out of the 4 answers are linked and which remaining answer is unconnected (the Red Herring). Think of the 'picture round' in Have I Got News For
