This is the revision, review and assessment lesson for Theme F: Religion, human rights and social justice.

The differences between Sunni and Shia Muslims

The differences between Sunni and Shia Muslims

This lesson requires students to create mindmaps on the differences between Sunni and Shi’a Muslim’s using Victor Watton’s Islam textbook. The textbook is old but it is in simple language that enables students to understand the basics and build on that knowledge later on in year 13.

Sunni Islam and the Four Caliphs

Sunni Islam and the Four Caliphs

For the unit on Traditions of Islam, this presentation covers an introduction to Sunni Islam and the history of the’Four Caliphs’. These lessons (about 2-3) provide a good background for my students before I teach the key differences between Sunni and Shi’a Muslims. You will need Robert Frager’s book and if you hover over the blue box on slide 14, it will take you to a 20 minute documentary by Al Jazeera about the four caliphs.

How to answer an exam question - The Prophet Muhammad

How to answer an exam question - The Prophet Muhammad

I use this lesson to consolidate all the learning of the prophecy and revelation unit. In this lesson I use the ‘treesoning’ activity which I picked up on at a P4C conference. It is a great way to get the year 12 students thinking about the question and encourage them to develop a deeper understanding. If you do not know what treesoning involves, look it up. The last few slides can be used to check their planning and provide them with additional ideas to discuss in their essay.

Introduction to Hadiths

Introduction to Hadiths

These lessons will provide a thorough introduction to the complexity of understanding Hadiths and introduce students to two Muslim scholars who are specialists in this area, Dr.Jonathan Brown (as mentioned in the OCR reading list) and Jeremy Henzell-Thomas. You will need 2-3 lessons and select pages from Brown’s book ‘Misquoiting Muhammad’ and the introductory chapter from ‘The Book of Hadith’ by Charles Le Gai Eaton to complete the written tasks.

Hijrah and Migration to Medina

My lesson on the Hijrah and significance of the migration to Medina. Requires good subject knowledge to be able to explain this through.

The life of the Prophet Muhammad

My fourth lesson for AS Islam. This lesson will take more than one lesson. It includes a timeline and tasks that I set using the WJEC year 1 textbook on the early life of the Prophet Muhammad. As part of another lesson and for homework, my classes watch Rageh Omar’s BBC documentary on the life of Muhammad. The other excellent documentary to accompany this lesson or for homework would be to use PBS A Legacy of a Prophet.
