I have finally posted the essay wraps in the resources section. Because they don’t apply to a particular inquiry that has a defined start time, they are the kind of resource that we are constantly working on, and I kept waiting for the “final version” to post. Since they are likely to continue to evolve, however, I thought it might be more useful just to share a current version. I know Joe has been working on developing them further over the summer, so will share the new versions in due course. Seeing how a resource evolves as it is used and refined is often very useful.
The UK and Global Politics wrap is more up-to-date than the Political Ideas one because that is the one that saw the most use. I haven’t updated Political Ideas because I know Joe was planning some updates of his own, so the front and back of that reflect the previous version of UK and Global Politics. You will see, for example, that the cover page gives more space to Connect and Wonder and less to Investigate because we realised that there was less to record for the Investigate stage when writing an essay because it generally mostly involved using class notes and textbooks. The back page is also less busy – we stripped out anything we thought was unlikely to be read!
