Card Sort: Women Priests - Arguments For & Against

The issue of whether women should be priests has divided the Christian community for a long time. This great resource is designed to help students understand some of the main arguments put forward by both sides. It can be used with a range of abilities and has never failed to get my students excited, engaged, whilst improving their understanding of the topic. It be used alongside any main stream text book or video clip as a starter, mini plenary or a consolidation exercise. When you purchase this resource, you will be able to download a single page Word Document which contains a learning objective, instructions, two heading cards as well as fourteen statements that can sorted to help summarise the arguments. The aims of this lesson / activity are: Theme: The role of women within the Christian Church Know: What role have women played traditionally within the Christian Church?
