GCSE Buddhism (OCR B / AQA) 20 Lessons - Very High Quality - Complete Resources (Lesson Plans, Worksheets, Presentations)

GCSE Buddhism (OCR B / AQA) 20 Lessons - Very High Quality - Complete Resources (Lesson Plans, Worksheets, Presentations)

This course has been made specifically for the new OCR B Religious Studies specification (2016 onwards). It has been designed around the OCR B specification, consequently it is also fully sufficient to teach the AQA specification (and will be useful to teachers teaching on Edexcel, which is slightly different to OCR B/AQA in terms of course contents) It covers all necessary material for the 'Beliefs, Teachings & Practices' section (Section A) of the course in relation to BUDDHISM. It is the product of many weeks work: I have aimed to make these resources such that every lesson would receive a good or outstanding rating if inspected. All lesson downloads include: -A detailed lesson plan: explaining objectives, differentiation, cross-curricular aims, AfL tasks, and an activity timeline. -A presentation file designed to the highest professional standard. -Integrated and varied AfL -A suggested homework task The course features 15 worksheets, a 'Buddhist board-game' template, various 'knowledge hunt' activities and also features an IT Suite Lesson. It is designed to be a complete course for the first year of GCSE Religious Studies teaching. Downloading this bundle will certainly save you many many hours of preparation time: as a practising Buddhist I hope it will allow Religious Studies Teachers to teach the Buddhist component of their chosen GCSE specification. Positive reviews are warmly welcomed: I have made this course with pride and hope you will find it comprehensive and useful. "May you be happy, may you be healthy, may you be peaceful."
