Christianity 9-1 Exam Question Practice

**Eduqas Revision: GCSE Christianity - Unit 2 Exam Question Generator **

This is a great resource for getting pupils thinking about how exam questions are formulated. It is designed to get pupils into the mindset of the chief examiner to see how they could word questions based on the 4 questions that are in the exam (a-d Key Words, Describe, Explain & Evaluate).

This is also great for revision and keeping pupils ‘on their toes’ as the topic and questions that come up are random.

You can copy and paste the Exam Question Generator slide into any presentation you wish or use the slide as a standalone resource.

The Exam Question Generator will generate the start of an exam question and an area of content that you have taught the pupils for Component 2: Christianity. This will then enable you and/or the class to come up with an exam style question based on the selected question and topic generated.

There are 9 question options

Contained in the selector are 53 topics based on Christian beliefs, teachings and practices.

That’s over 477 question combinations!!!

There is also a separate revision selector for the 8 key terms that pupils need to know for part a questions.

AQA GCSE 9-1 Specification A Christianity - Practices - Revision materials

Topic by topic (21 files in total), the Specification section for Christianity (Practices) is covered through the prism of the types of questions asked in the sample materials published by AQA. This means the students can have a set of notes covering the areas they need to know for the exam. These topic sheets also offer some ideas for questions for every topic in all the questions types found in the exam (1, 2, 4, 5, 12 mark questions) based on all the formats published by AQA to be able to see each topic in exam terms in both knowledge and evaluation style questions.
How to use - whilst written as revision sheets, and given that they unpack the Specification, the sheets could be used as the basis for teaching each topic, or could be used as homework sheets (as they provide the information and some sample questions). They could also be simplified or used in comprehension tasks as well as discussion and for exam question practice.
They are suitable for full course GCSE. they were written for Y10, but the same would be used with Y11. More to be posted - on other religions - when completed.

AQA A GCSE Theme B Religion and Life: Assessment and revision

This is the revision, review and assessment lesson for Theme B: Religion and Life.

I have chosen to ask pupils to revise and prepare for a 48 mark assessment rather than just a 24 mark one. This means they will be doing an additional 24 mark question on Christianity: Practices. My rationale for this is to give the pupils a chance to revise content from last year and to ensure they are keeping on topic of all key words.

Attached in the ppt is:
Two revision mind maps with key words included
Two 24 mark assessments based on exemplar papers and questions provided from the exam board.
