Changing attitudes to relationships AQA 9-1 GCSE (Relationships and Families 3.0)

Changing attitudes to relationships AQA 9-1 GCSE (Relationships and Families 3.0)

I teach this lesson at the start of the Relationships and Families thematic until (Chapter 3). I want students to understand the diverse world we live in and put the learning we will do into context. I also want the students to understand that we embrace all of them and are not interested in pigeon-holing them into badly defined categories of sexuality. The aim here is to open the debate, challenge preconceptions, build a welcoming and open discussion environment and show them how relevant this topic area is to all of us.

Religious Teachings about Marriage (Christian) AQA 9-1 GCSE (Relationships and Families 3.4)

Religious Teachings about Marriage (Christian) AQA 9-1 GCSE (Relationships and Families 3.4)

In this puzzling lesson students examine closely different elements, symbols and beliefs about marriage in Christianity. They will be able to explain in detail why marriage is important for Christians. They will also be able to suggest reasons why same-sex couples have fought for the legal right to marry, as well as identify objections that Christians might have for this. There is a numeracy element to the starter and the group work task really engages the students to figure out how the puzzle goes together. Lesson plan and all resources are included, it's ready to go out of the box. Please note that I don't use a powerpoint for this lesson - it just doesn't need one!

The Witches - Roald Dahl - Novel Study Presentation

The Witches - Roald Dahl - Novel Study Presentation

This presentation (Powerpoint) covers a HUGE range of learning areas that are available in the novel The Witches by Roald Dahl. Starting with the history of witches and going through the book itself, author, publisher. We then delve into the characters that are in this story (of which there are plenty). Then we explore Settings, what they are and the different settings that are portrayed throughout the story. In every story, there are conventions that the author uses and this is no different in The Witches, There is Exposition, Rising action, climax and then Resolution. Each of these areas is explored in detail. Plot and Theme are also touched on. This presentation was used over the course of a term as students read through the novel, it was accompanied by worksheets that were generic but could change with the different content in the presentation. i.e. when looking at settings the questions were similar but a different setting was explored each lesson. You could take the bits you need or use it as a whole presentation. A fabulous resource when teaching this novel. P.s - There are some pictures with eyes and a man looking over his shoulder in the upper left of some slides. These are there to remind students to look back through the book at something they have already discussed, or look into something with more detail.
