Dharma in Hinduism
A lesson suitable for GCSE or A-level Hinduism, which can be adapted to suit KS3. A comprehensive examination of Dharma in Hinduism, ranging from Sanatadharma to Varnadharma and the role of the Atman in Hindu Dharma. Includes two very engaging video clips as well as diamond 9 activity and reference to sources of wisdom and authority. There is a lot of content (planned for a 100 minute lesson), so it may be suitable to split this into 2 lessons (if you teach 60 minutes). There is a chance for students to be creative by writing a diary entry from the perspective of one of the Varnas and an interactive plenary focusing on the Atman, This lesson is particularly relevant for high ability students.
