Authority KS3 RS Religious Education Scheme of work unit Y7 Y8 or Y9

Authority KS3 RS Religious Education Scheme of work unit Y7 Y8 or Y9

This unit includes all you need to teach for around a term to KS3. There are lesson power points with back up activities, sheets, discussion points, resources, assessments etc. There is an assessment record page and a scheme of work to go with the powerpoint too. I have also written a three hour Flip Learning Project which substitutes some of the lessons as additional extra., the 99 names of God. Unit looks at leaders across faiths, holy scripture/Qu’ran as authority, Muhammad’s Night of Power and issue of obedience to authority/tradition/culture etc through wearing of coverings as a decision for Muslim women. This unit is a bridging unit into Islam another unit I have uploaded as pupils enjoyed this so much, I wrote a full unit on Islam for them for the next term. The PPT has 12 lessons and 53 slides with activities. You can pretty much walk into the room and teach from it, without further resources. Ideal if RS cover teacher or non-specialist too. I have developed a whole unit work from Year 5 up to Year 8 which I am now uploading. These have taken me hundreds of hours so I hope this saves you lots of time. Happy Sunday!

ISLAM RE: MUSLIM BELIEFS WHOLE UNIT

ISLAM RE: MUSLIM BELIEFS WHOLE UNIT

One of the most effective visual ways of revising is to see sampler or exam style questions being answered to understand what you would need to include in your personal answers in your RE course to get the marks wanted. I have created exam style questions with answers to them to show you what type of answers would be acceptable, and it is a great way of revising the unit as I have adapted the questions to suit the information that I have included for each sub-topic. Hope this is helpful and would appreciate if this format or my mind map format that I have used for all of the Christianity unit is better. REMEMBER to read the red small print that is above all of the information on each word document!
