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!

Eduqas 9-1 New Specification. Issues of Good and Evil unit. Free Will.

Eduqas 9-1 New Specification. Issues of Good and Evil unit. Free Will.

This resource has been designed with differentiation in mind and includes a range of activities such as videos and literacy work. The focus of this double lesson is to look at the concept of free will and links to the previous lessons on theodicies. Predestination and free will are compared and there is a reference to an 8 mark question. The aim is to lead students into the area of study with an understanding of differing views on the subject. The activities are colour coded to match the objectives so that students understand the progress that is being made throughout and promotes an element of independence. Reference is made to the Christian view.

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.
