This lesson is the fifth in my ‘Alternative Religions and New Movements’ Unit - originally created for year 9, but easily amended for any KS3 / KS4 group. The lesson can easily be used in isolation, however. The lesson has been left editable and is filled with engaging, well differentiated and fun activities. It is useful for RE or History, or could be used as a standalone lesson as something different for a drop-down-day. The pack includes a 1 hour long PowerPoint, differentiated challenge activities, worksheets, clips and literacy focus tasks.

Bad Business - introduction to Business Ethics

Bad Business - introduction to Business Ethics

A description of a fictitious business called Everlasting Soul - a children’s clothing company. I have used this in Key Stage 3 RE lessons. Throughout the overview of the company are questionable practices that would contradict ethical theories and religious teachings. Students highlight the things that they think present a problem. It can also be used with GCSE Business Studies students as a starter on Business Ethics. Great paired activity. Generates good discussion and debate.

Is lying always wrong?

Is lying always wrong?

A web-based activity (webquest) that can be used for GCSE or A level students on the ethics of lying. The activity sets up a scenario in which the students have to take on the role of a researcher for a Sunday morning TV programme. The integrity and quality of the programme (and the research) is therefore important. Some links to websites are provided as a starting point.
