Consumption: Need or Want?

Consumption: Need or Want?

Students will think about what they encounter and consume in their day-to-day lives, and think about those things in terms of whether they fulfill a ‘need’ or a ‘want’. Students create a list of consumables and categorise them as needs or wants, then make a list of their own needs and wants.

Moral issues: Introduction to animal rights and animal welfare issues

Moral issues: Introduction to animal rights and animal welfare issues

This lesson is specifically for young adults to encourage debate - would work well as part of critical thinking, philosophy & ethics and getting students to develop essential skills in debating key issues. Whether we are aware of it or not, animals are a huge part of our everyday lives. From the food we eat to the pets we keep, it’s important that kids today understand what happens to animals and how best to treat them. The rise in veganism and vegetarianism is bringing up a number of issues and causing rifts in society. Both present a number of pros and cons. In this lesson plan, you’ll be taken through what animal rights and animal welfare mean, what they stand for and generally encouraged to push debate with your class.

Meta Ethics Lesson Pack: New Spec A2

Meta Ethics Lesson Pack: New Spec A2

This lesson pack is designed to cover the OCR New Spec requirements for teaching A2 Meta Ethics in 8.00 teaching hours. It includes all worksheets and activities and are downloadable immediately. What makes these unique? I currently teach around 100 R.S A level students, with up to 26 mixed ability students in a class. This is how I cover the spec in the tight time frame we have. There is also a power point, which can be viewed on YouTube or purchased separately, that complements this lesson pack. There are no bells and whistles, no activities that take hours to prepare or a physics degree to understand. Why? Because as a full time teacher, battling a new spec, there is no time. Once downloaded they are yours to keep and adapt for your students as necessary. Tried and Tested!
