God Essay  Revision Lesson - AQA A Level Religious Studies

God Essay Revision Lesson - AQA A Level Religious Studies

This is a whole lesson planned for revising the content of the topic of God whilst also focusing on essay writing. Written as part of AQA scheme of work but easily adaptable to other exam boards. Included is a writing frame (normally sold separately) which helps students structure their essays. - This is a differentiation tool. This lesson was used by myself as part of a formal observation and is OFSTED ready. It's fully customizable and also employs paired and group work. Use of ICT is good, it also has quirky Star Wars characters in it which can be edited out. The background is winter themed - again, easily changed and content remains the same.
