Forgiveness and Reconciliation in Christianity and Islam

Forgiveness and Reconciliation in Christianity and Islam

This lesson looks at the issues of Forgiveness and Reconciliation in two religions (Christianity and Islam). It uses religious quotes and teachings to explain what both relgions teach about Forgiveness and Reconciliation. It allows the pupils to compare and contrast two contrasting religions and see if there are more silimarities or differences between the two. This lesson is quite extensive and can be completed over two hours (or one lesson and a homework). An interesting and important lesson.

Why do we punish people - Theories of Punishment

Why do we punish people - Theories of Punishment

A fascinating lesson that looks at the four main theories of why we use punishment. -Deterrent -Retribution -Protection -Reform It looks at case studies as to how effective the student think these theories are, and it prepares the students for an essay quesion (which can be peer assessed at the end of the lesson) A highly useful introduction to the idea of law and order in society. Originally created for a RS lesson, but can be used forHistory, PSHE or Citizenship. I have also included an interesting article from the Guardian that disusses why prison doesn't work. It can be used as lesson prep, or as an extension for brighter/older pupils.
