A-Level RE - Buddhism - Buddhism and the challenge from science

A-Level RE - Buddhism - Buddhism and the challenge from science

This lesson - planned for a double lesson - will guide students through the challenges facing Buddhism today from science. The case studies used will help students learn about the Kalama Sutra and how the Buddha taught to avoid 'blind faith', the Dalai Lama's attempts to collaborate Buddhism with science and how the Buddhist world view of different realms would clash with scientific ideas. There are plenty of worksheets and learning checks throughout the lesson. This lesson is planned with the Eduqas scheme of work in mind but can be easily adapted to all exam boards

Paranormal Investigations RE Themed lesson X files

Paranormal Investigations RE Themed lesson X files

This is a really fun lesson, aimed at KS3 Y8-9. They take the role of investigators, looking into detailed 'case files' which include eye-witness testimonies, scientific reports and images. There are also videos contained within the power point. Topics include reincarnation, NDE, Mediums/Ghosts. I would recommend turning out the lights, have some lamps or fairy lights (at least initially) and play the X files music while the students come in. They get really excited and enjoy it. I'd also recommend photocopying onto sugar paper to add to the effect, printing each activity on different colour helps too.

Humanism

Humanism

A lesson that explores what Humanism is, including descriptions, embedded videos, exploration of controversy surrounding Richard Dawkins and independent learning activities and discussions. Also, for the creatives out there, an extension which involves writing a rap. Learning questions include: What is Humanism? What do Humanists believe? What are the challenges of believing in Humanism? Extension: Is Humanism a religion? This is intended to help students explore and think with nuance about Humanism, the role of religion in the modern world (if indeed it has any), and is differentiated in its tasks: each question gets increasingly difficult and there are differentiated targets for video clips and activities.
