Introduction to the life and teachings of Jesus Christ

This resource is designed for OCR’s GSCE (9-1) in Religious Studies (J625/01 or J125): ‘Beliefs and Teachings and Practices’ (Christianity). It aims to prepare the students for the study of ‘Jesus Christ’ by offering an introduction to His life and teachings and also, to embed literacy skills across your teaching of Religious Studies. It is designed to last 2-3 periods.

Learning Objectives
Pupils will learn to:
✶ identify 2-3 facts about Jesus’ life;
✶ explain Jesus’ main teachings.

✶ All pupils: can explain Jesus’ main teachings and give a brief account of Jesus’s life using 3-4 key words
✶ Most pupils: can explain Jesus’ main teachings and give an account of Jesus’s life using 5-6 key words
✶ Some pupils: can explain Jesus’ main teachings and give a detailed account of Jesus’s life using all key words

Delivering topic content using a different strategy
Developing literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing sit at the core of all curricula around the globe and thus, developing literacy skills is a key focus in every classroom. This resource provides you with another approach to a routine task and focuses on an approach called: 'Reading to Write’ which was developed in Australia. Using this strategy, the content of a topic is taught through the reading and writing rather than using the reading and writing after the teaching.

Please note that this resource is just an introduction to the topic: ‘Jesus Christ’; the rest of the resources addressing this topic will follow soon.

This resource contains:
✶ Cover
✶ Teacher Notes (including detailed instructions, the steps and the benefits of the strategy)
✶ PowerPoint Presentation ((fully editable and with animation)
✶ Worksheets (for teachers and pupils)
✶ Lesson Plan
✶ TOU/Credits
