WJEC EDUQAS GCSE RELIGIOUS STUDIES – REVISION MATERIALS – CHRISTIAN BELIEFS

WJEC EDUQAS GCSE RELIGIOUS STUDIES – REVISION MATERIALS – CHRISTIAN BELIEFS

This is a set of revision sheets for WJEC GCSE Religious Studies for Christianity - Beliefs. It takes into account the question forms asked in the published SAMS, presenting material to support revision for the angles of questioning they pose. So it covers key terms, key and other teachings, general and specific religious information to do with each topic, and examples of diversity in belief/ practice. The reverse of each two-sided sheet provides guidance on answering each of the question types from the SAMS - so that students can become more familiar and so comfortable with the topics in exam terms. There are a number of sample questions for students to practise with in each format. The sheets can be used as a revision tool at home, as notes for class, to set homework from the questions on there. They also form a good basic level of knowledge for any teacher, and good examples of questions which can be explored with classes.

Peace and Conflict Scheme of Work

A scheme of work which covers the causes of war, how it is justified politically and religiously, nuclear war, pacifism, north korea, 9.11 and terrorism, with an opportunity for an creative and analytical assessment. I've tweaked, modified and re-vamped these resources to maximise engagement and learning for 2018.

This leads on to a creative activity where students create a poster, poem or rap to exemplify the Just War Theory’s 7 aspects. Learning Questions include: What is the Just War Theory? Do I agree with it? Why? Differentiated learning outcomes included, which evaluate why Christians may or may not agree with the Just War Theory.

Causes of War

Causes of War

A lesson that explores the learning questions: What causes war? Is war ever justified? Using a game students explore in teams of 6 the possible causes of war, and evaluate if they are worthwhile. Differentiated learning outcomes and links to youtube videos included, this lesson has been tweaked over a course of 5 years into something that works for me in the classroom. It includes guided discussion and debate topics, as well as some religious opinions in the form of Augustine’s just war theory. Any necessary instructions included in the powerpoint notes.
