The influence that Dumfries and Galloway has had on the religious development of Scotland.

The influence that Dumfries and Galloway has had on the religious development of Scotland.

This is for the Junior schools in Scotland. It includes notes on the Covenanters, St.Ninian, The Marist Brothers, Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche who is the founder of the Sammye Ling Centre. Some of the resources will be easier than others. Differentiation can also be by outcome. This is linked to the e's and the o's of Curriculum for Excellence. The resource on Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche may be useful if you are doing a project on Buddhism. Or you may wish to do a project on the Covenanters or perhaps the Marist Brothers. Resources could also be adapted for your own locality.

AQA GCSE RELIGIOUS STUDIES A (9-1) - BUDDHISM BELIEFS

AQA GCSE RELIGIOUS STUDIES A (9-1) - BUDDHISM BELIEFS

These are a set of double sided sheets to over the Beliefs section of AQAs RS Spec A for Buddhism. The first side gives information about a topic within the Beliefs section, so that any question set is catered for. The second side gives some examples of potential questions - based on the Sample Assessment Materials (SAMS) which have been published by AQA. Examples of both are viewable. It is a revision tool as it specifically targets knowledge needed for exam questions.It provides a number of teachings for each topic area - as AQAs questions demand the use of teachings for a student to get high marks - which are explained. It works with any KS4. Whilst it is aimed at AQA, the common subject content for Religions enforced by DfE/Ofqual make the information side useable for any board.Teachers could use it as the basis for preparing a lesson(s), issue for revision or as homework.

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."

KS3 assessment on 'suffering' including planning sheets, leveled questions and success criteria

KS3 assessment on 'suffering' including planning sheets, leveled questions and success criteria

This is an assessment I planned for a unit of work on suffering for KS3 (please see lessons for this in my TES shop). The assessment contains differentiated questions based on the following:1. Different kinds of suffering (natural and moral evil mentioned in here).2. How suffering is dealt with in Christianity (Charity, golden rule and Good Samaritan).3. How suffering is dealt with in Buddhism.This assessment would last 2 lessons as I have included 'planning sheets' for all pupils. These sheets are differentiated for the lower, middle and higher ability students and this is done in a 'chili challenge' style.The question sheet doubles up as a marking grid and I highlight strengths and targets to help the students complete follow up work and DIRT time.

GCSE (9-1) RS - Relevant teachings for Buddhism - Beliefs and Practices

GCSE (9-1) RS - Relevant teachings for Buddhism - Beliefs and Practices

AQA GCSE RS (9-1) has questions which demand the use of teachings if a student wishes to achieve a good grade. Whilst it is easy to just teach students to give the obvious - karma, Dharma, ahimsa, Right Action (etc) - it is more impressive to have more directly applicable teachings, and to show a more detailed knowledge through these. These are sheets to give two relevant and usable teachings per topic area for the Beliefs and Practices sections for Buddhism. Each section is covered in two sides.Can be used as an aide memoire in class, as a revision sheet, to aid question response. Also useful as a homework aid – so that homework can be set with students using their own ‘teachings sheet’ which they have at home.Could be laminated/stuck to the desk as a permanent feature of lessons whilst covering the section in class , so that students can have them available in discussion and written work.

Religious Studies GCSE Revision Guide/Resource (AQA RS B - Unit 2)

Religious Studies GCSE Revision Guide/Resource (AQA RS B - Unit 2)

A 43 page information filled revision guide for RS GCSE for AQA B. Includes high level of detail, supporting images, exam technique tips, checklist for each unit. My students absolutely love it and encouraged me to sell it online so blame them, if anyone. It took a huge amount of time to put together but is really useful, particularly for pupils with long term absence or a lack of funds to buy revision guides.
