Religion, Crime & Punishment (10 Lesson Unit) (AQA GCSE Religious Studies)
This bundle contains ten fully resourced and professionally designed KS4 Religious Studies lessons as well as additional teaching materials for GCSE Religious Studies: Thematic Studies.

It has been created for the latest AQA GCSE Religious Studies Specification and covers the thematic study 'Religion, Crime & Punishment' (Theme E) and focuses on Christian teachings. It should be useful to all GCSE Religious Studies teachers: even if using other specifications.

The download includes 10 Lessons, though some can be used over two 1-hour periods:
1) Introduction
2) Central Debates
3) The Causes of Crime
4) Responses to Crime
5) Christian Teachings About Crime & Criminals
6) The Aims & Effectiveness of Punishment
7) ICT Suite Lesson
8) Corporal & Capital Punishment
9) Assessment Lesson
10) Unit Overview (Video-Learning Worksheet Lesson)

The bundle also includes:
-A Personal Learning Checklist (PLC) for this unit
-A DIRT/AfL Worksheet
-The Christian Ethical Debate Generator

For most RE teachers this download includes everything you need to teach this thematic study, not including the comparative religion aspect of the thematic study.

Lessons about comparative religious traditions will be released at a later date as "bolt-ons" to this 10-lesson unit.

My ambition was to make the best available thematic studies resources on Tes, so I hope you like it!

If you are pleased with this bundle, please leave a review so that other RE teachers know that it is worth getting :)
