Death and Afterlife workbook - Christianity - OCR A-level Religious Studies (RS)

A complete student workbook for the death and afterlife unit of the OCR A-level Religious Studies syllabus, Development of Christian Thought unit. It can also be applicable for other exam boards, such as Edexcel and AQA.
The workbook is 17 pages covering beliefs in heaven, hell and purgatory; whether these are spiritual, symbolic or physical places; different beliefs about election (including limited, unlimited and universalism); the importance of Jesus’ resurrection and the teachings of St. Paul; the key questions of the unit - e.g. whether the afterlife is eternal, if purgatory is a state everyone goes through and whether heaven is the perfection and transformation of the whole of creation. This includes a great range of Biblical scripture and parables, and key scholars, e.g. Calvin, Augustine, HIck and Barth - to name a few
There a range of different activities and key questions for discussion. The whole unit can be taught purely form the workbook with enough space for students notes and clear structure for the whole scheme of work.
I usually take approximately ten teaching hours with the use of this booklet for the whole unit.
I hope you find it useful and happy teaching!
