British Politics & Government Wordsearch PSHE British Values Settler Activity Cover Lesson

British Politics & Government Wordsearch PSHE British Values Settler Activity Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'British Politics'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

KS3 SOW RS- Introduction to Greek Philosophy Truth. Fully resourced with Assessment

A fully resourced (9 lessons and 1 assessment) SOW which I have delivered to both Y7 and Y8 to introduce the Greek philosophers Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. All students engaged really well with the content and really enjoyed learning about content normally reserved for 'a level.' The high level knowledge is broken up over 9 lessons and developed upon in each leading to a written assessment piece. Lessons Titles include: Types of truth, Socrates, Socratic Dialogue, Plato, The Analogy of the cave, Aristotle, Comparison of philosophers and then revision. The running these throughout is their attitude to truth. Enjoy and please rate. All feedback is welcomed.

P4C Workshop

P4C Workshop

This is a short workshop to teach you the basics of Philosophy For Children (P4C). It's a great way to get your children's thinking caps on! I've really noticed the difference in the rich discussions I've got out of classes where It was made part of their weekly routine.

Developments in Christian Thought podcast series 1

Developments in Christian Thought podcast series 1

6 podcasts covering half of the content of The Developments in Christian Thought section of the course for £5. We get our students at The Manchester Grammar School to listen to these before we begin teaching a module so that they can engage in discussion from the outset. They can stick them on their phone / iPod and listen to them on the bus into school or at home. It also means that when you start teaching, it's the second time students are encountering ideas, so they learn more. Hope you find them useful - there's a Marx one for free to show you the type of format. Let us know what you think and we'll take this on board for the second series. Thanks, Mark Coffey (M.A. Oxon, M.A.Leeds & author of Ethics for OCR, Polity Press) and Dr Andrew Brower-Latz (PhD, Durham & author of The Social Philosophy of Gillian Rose)

Marxism - OCR RS Unit 6 - Challenges

Marxism - OCR RS Unit 6 - Challenges

This podcast series introduces topics for the OCR Religious Studies Developments in Christian Thought section of the A Level. In our teaching at The Manchester Grammar School, we get students to listen to these before beginning a topic so that they already have some background understanding, vocabulary, and a sense of the landscape of a topic. It speeds up their learning and engagement in discussion. N.B. It was 1845 that Marx and Engels met in Cheetham's Library in what was MGS, not the 1870's as mentioned at the outset of this podcast. by Mark Coffey (M.A. Oxon, and author of Ethics for OCR RS) and Dr Andrew Brower Latz (PhD, Durham, and author of The Social Philosophy of Gillian Rose).

Bonhoeffer Podcast - OCR RS - Unit 3 - Living

Mark Coffey (author of Ethics for OCR Religious Studies) and Dr Brower-Latz (author of the social philosophy of Gillian Rose) discuss the topics on the OCR RS unit 3. This wide ranging discussion of around 50 mins covers the content of the topic. The intention is for students to listen to before lessons so they can come to lessons with a good knowledge and understanding, helping them to engage in discussions and absorb more.
