AQA GCSE (9-1) RS Spec A - Revision materials - Theme E Religion, Crime and Punishment - Islam

AQA GCSE (9-1) RS Spec A - Revision materials - Theme E Religion, Crime and Punishment - Islam

These are materials for revising Theme E from the perspective of Islam. From the specification, the Theme is split into a series of topics, each having its own sheet. Using the exam questions as published in Specimen Materials as a start point, the topics are tackled via these questions on the first side of each sheet. On the reverse of the sheet are examples of potential questions, using the language of the Specimen Materials. These can be used in class, as a revision aid, issued for homework to do some/all the questions. They can form the basis of a lesson. They are useful for non-specialists to support subject knowledge.

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.
