AQA A GCSE Theme C Existence of God and Revelation: Assessment and revision

AQA A GCSE Theme C Existence of God and Revelation: Assessment and revision

This is the revision, review and assessment lesson for Theme C: Existence of God and Revelation. I have chosen to ask pupils to revise and prepare for a 48 mark assessment rather than just a 24 mark one. This means they will be doing an additional 24 mark question on Christianity: Beliefs and Teachings. My rationale for this is to give the pupils a chance to revise content from last year and to ensure they are keeping on topic of all key words. Attached in the ppt is: Two revision mind maps with key words included Two 24 mark assessments based on exemplar papers and questions provided from the exam board.

AQA A GCSE Theme C Existence of God: Lesson 7 and 8 Attributes of the Divine and Value of Revelation

AQA A GCSE Theme C Existence of God: Lesson 7 and 8 Attributes of the Divine and Value of Revelation

This is the 7th-8th lesson in the AQA A GCSE thematic unit of work for 'existence of God and revelation' and it is focused on both the attributes of the divine and value of revelation. It is a combination of both elements of the course as I felt the students had covered the attributes of the divine in depth through their Christian and Islamic studies. It is therefore possible to deliver this lesson in 50-60 minutes. The lesson has been fully resourced to a high standard with a range of differentiated tasks (using the good, better, best system). The lesson is designed to challenge the students as well as make them familiar with new concepts, knowledge and how to apply their learning to the exam. I will be adding lessons on a weekly basis so please keep looking! If you choose to use this resource I would really appreciate a review.

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
