AQA 9-1 Religious Studies Spec A The Origins of the Universe

AQA 9-1 Religious Studies Spec A The Origins of the Universe

The powerpoint is designed to cover all the main teachings, key words, sub-topics and typical exam questions relating to AQA 9-1 Religious Studies Spec A. The word document is designed to accompany the ppt slides. This is intended to provide a ‘safety net’ for all students but particularly those who may be struggling and just want to be clear on what the main learning actually involves. It is assumed that these activities are ‘cemented’ by other activities, especially useful diverges to enhance interest and learning. This lesson was particularly difficult to resource without going too heavily into creationism or science. However, the implication is that these issues will have to be referred to at some point. There is also a homework task to ensure the Muslim beliefs about creation are covered if there isn’t time for a separate lesson. The key concepts are covered in the lesson so the homework should be accessible to all.

Expand Your Mind

Expand Your Mind

The world of Religious traditions brings with it a rich tapestry of mind blowing achievements. This resource is designed to re-calibrate learners perceptions of reality. Learners are presented with the awe inspiring dedication of the Shaolin Grandmaster that managed to perform the form of "One Finger Zen", the Shaivite Hindu Sadhu Amar Bharati who has held his arm in the air for over 14years (this is a tradition in the GurShishya Pranpara that can be traced back 1000's of years) and the Buddha Boy who sat in meditation under a tree for many months in Nepal. The resource then forces learners to gain a deeper understanding of Humankind by exploring the vast size of the Universe around us. Best suited to KS3, i personally use this lesson as an introduction to my teaching when I begin teaching at a new school. I have had outstanding feedback on this lesson and the way it engages learners in deep profound thought.

AQA A GCSE Theme B Religion and Life: Lesson 4 The origins and value of the world

AQA A GCSE Theme B Religion and Life: Lesson 4 The origins and value of the world

This is the 4th lesson in the AQA A GCSE thematic unit of work for 'Religion and Life' and it is focused on the origins of the world and the value of it. This appears as two lessons in the text book but as it repeats a lot of the content from the Christianity and Islam units, I felt it best to deliver it as one session. The lesson has been fully resourced to a high standard with a range of differentiated tasks (using the good, better, ASPIRE system). The lesson is designed to challenge the students as well as make them familiar with new concepts, knowledge and how to apply their learning to the exam. I will be adding lessons on a weekly basis so please keep looking! If you choose to use this resource I would really appreciate a review.
