Religion, medical ethics and prejudice

Religion, medical ethics and prejudice

This 6 Lesson unit of study uses the film “Gattaca” to investigate Christian and Buddhist views on prejudice, sanctity of life and medical ethics. There is a teacher’s guide to show you what to focus on in each lesson and when to pause the film. There are various tasks to focus the students on the views of Buddhism and Christianity. You will need a copy of the DVD. The Unit includes an assessment opportunity, with a marking and RAG feedback sheet. The final lesson is a debate between Christian and Buddhist views on this topic, which can also be seen as an alternative assessment.

AQA 9-1 Religious Studies Spec A Euthanasia & Abortion (Two Lessons) 10 Files

AQA 9-1 Religious Studies Spec A Euthanasia & Abortion (Two Lessons) 10 Files

Both powerpoints are 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. For euthanasia I have attempted to find interesting real life examples such as Tony Bland and Diane Pretty with the intention that students begin to engage with the feelings of how crucial the issue is to their future lives and the lives of others. There are extension tasks that could also work as homework task to ensure content is covered if there isn’t time for a separate lesson. Homework is also provided to examine the case of Terry Pratchett and how he considered the merits of euthanasia but went on to achieve more with his life and die naturally. The latter is a really good example of a real case example of how decisions about euthanasia could lead to unforeseen and tragic consequences. There are extension tasks that could also work as homework task to ensure content is covered if there isn’t time for a separate lesson. Specifically for abortion homework is also provided for comparing Christian teachings and examining the case of Savita Halappanavar.

RE A2 Ethics - Unit 6 Mini SOW Beginning of Life Issues

RE A2 Ethics - Unit 6 Mini SOW Beginning of Life Issues

Herewith 3 sessions which comprise half of the Ethics Unit 6. These 2 cover the required aspects of beginning of life issues with some scholars too. It may not include everything you want your students to study as it is designed to be a basic, to which they will add their own additional information as a result of their background reading. I have colour themes so this is very blue but it would be easy to alter the images and PPT design if you prefer.

RE A2 Ethics Unit 6 Session 6.1.3 Religious and secular perspectives on BOL issues

RE A2 Ethics Unit 6 Session 6.1.3 Religious and secular perspectives on BOL issues

This PPT goes through several key Christian teachings on beginning of life issues. It attempts to consider both the pro-life and pro-choice perspectives. There are areas of discussion throughout as well as some opportunities for stretch and challenge for the very brightest students. For example the syllogism is used here to demonstrate both sides of the argument. There is also a lead into the required scholar, Peter Singer - I set this as a further reading task but you could add the information if needed.

RE A2 Edexcel Ethics - Unit 6 Abortion Law

RE A2 Edexcel Ethics - Unit 6 Abortion Law

This is the second session which looks at the Abortion Act 1967 and amendments. It also creates an opportunity for 6th form discussion on the map and should be a stimulus session for them to go and research more about this very contemporary issue.
