Margaret Thatcher

With the death today of Margaret Thatcher you will certainly be seeing a lot about her career.  I, of course, am thinking of how I can use it as a review of sorts for my AP Comparative students.  One place to start is the of Margaret Thatcher foundation.  While obviously biased it does have a good chronology of her life and you can click on their links for more details.  More importantly you could ask your students about the Parliament, how people get elected and then go to how did she get elected to Parliament, backbencher, Prime Minister, Conservative and on it goes!
