Forgiveness and Reconciliation in Christianity and Islam

Forgiveness and Reconciliation in Christianity and Islam

This lesson looks at the issues of Forgiveness and Reconciliation in two religions (Christianity and Islam). It uses religious quotes and teachings to explain what both relgions teach about Forgiveness and Reconciliation. It allows the pupils to compare and contrast two contrasting religions and see if there are more silimarities or differences between the two. This lesson is quite extensive and can be completed over two hours (or one lesson and a homework). An interesting and important lesson.

Why do we punish people - Theories of Punishment

Why do we punish people - Theories of Punishment

A fascinating lesson that looks at the four main theories of why we use punishment. -Deterrent -Retribution -Protection -Reform It looks at case studies as to how effective the student think these theories are, and it prepares the students for an essay quesion (which can be peer assessed at the end of the lesson) A highly useful introduction to the idea of law and order in society. Originally created for a RS lesson, but can be used forHistory, PSHE or Citizenship. I have also included an interesting article from the Guardian that disusses why prison doesn't work. It can be used as lesson prep, or as an extension for brighter/older pupils.

Design your own religion - Alternative Religions

Design your own religion - Alternative Religions

This is a terrific lesson that challenges the pupils to create their own brand new religion. The lesson can be used as a stand alone lesson, or as part of the 'Alternative Religions' SoW. The lesson sets up an imaginary world where they get the opportunity to create their own unique religion based on what they have learned from their R.S. lessons. They work in groups to complete this task, and then present it to the class. The groups will then evaluate each others presentations and relgions (for some peer assessment). This lesson could be one, two or even three lessons.

My Own Parable

My Own Parable

This lesson was created for use in a KS3 Buddhism unit but could easily work in any RS unit of work, or indeed a PSHE unit. It tells the story of a young lady at an airport who jumps to the wrong conclusion when she doesn't have all the facts. It's told through a series of pictures and is a beautiful was to reinforce the message that a parable can be a highly effective way of getting across an important message. The pupils then have to create their own parables (there is a guide and some ideas to help them). This lesson can easily be extended to two or three lessons with extension activities (such as turning it into a role play, or making it a cartoon, or a presentation). A fun, fascinating and fantastic lesson.

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.
