This lesson is part of the Ethics unit of Life and Death. The aim of this lesson is to recap on the topic of stewardship and dominion and to investigate the views on the treatment of animals. It aims to link in the views of creation that have previously been studied and how this affects the way we see and treat animals. All tasks are differentiated (colour coded) to help with students progress. There is a link to exam practice at the end that can either be completed in class or set for homework.

RE GCSE AQA Religion and Life Whole Unit

RE GCSE AQA Religion and Life Whole Unit

Everything you need to teach this unit from the Paper 2 Themes section. I have focused on Christianity and Judaism (as they are the religions we teach) but also added in Buddhism as it is particularly useful for this unit. There are 5 lessons guided by PPT with clips, activities, discussion etc all built in. I have also included the very popular key teachings sheet and the Religion and Life essentials teachings booklet, as well as an end of unit assessment. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the content or want some guidance. Our lessons are doubles of 1 hour 40 minutes so these PPT have a lot of content, but of course you could split it down if your lesson structures differ.

RE GCSE Religion and Life End of Unit Assessment

RE GCSE Religion and Life End of Unit Assessment

At the end of each unit our college does an assessment which is very similar to the actual exam. I have made up these questions to assess knowledge across the whole unit. We use the FARM structure to assist students with their organisation of Q5, especially at the beginning of the course. I have also included the answer booklet. (You can download this for free anyway - it is listed with the rest of my resources on here).

Christian and Buddhist attitudes to the use and abuse of animals and the environment

NEW 2018 AQA Religious Studies Specification ‘A’ lesson on ‘Buddhist Beliefs and Teachings’ following the 1-9 grading criteria. The lesson includes differentiated tasks for every activity, designed to stretch and challenge all students. Students identify different uses and abuses of animals and the environment and which are acceptable, as well as suggesting possible solutions to unacceptable treatment. Students reflect on their learning so far with a progress bridge linked to the learning outcomes. A YouTube video by Al Gore introduces global warming and students identify areas of pollution. Students then respond to sacred writing from both Christianity and Buddhism, followed by another progress bridge linked to the learning outcomes. Lastly, students respond creatively to case studies and information from Catholic Christianity, the Parable of the Talents and Buddhism and the Holy Isle project.

AQA RE GCSE Spec A - Key Teachings Sheet for use with Paper 2 Themes and Religion and Life Teachings

AQA RE GCSE Spec A - Key Teachings Sheet for use with Paper 2 Themes and Religion and Life Teachings

This resource is ideal for establishing some baseline and universal teachings for use in the Thematic Studies Paper 2 part of the new AQA RE Spec A. I have focused on Judaism, Christianity and Buddhism and just given a few teachings which can be applied anywhere in the course. I have laminated this for my year 11's who are finding it really useful when preparing answers for Q3, Q4 and Q5. On the reverse is a list of the possible comparisons that can be used in the 4 mark 'contrasting' question, and the 3 areas of focus for each unit that our College is covering. It would be very easy to edit it and include different religions or topics as you need to. I have also added a booklet which I provide to my students at the end of the topic so that they can see the specific teachings which relate to that unit of work and also how to construct the response to question 3, with the 'contrasting' views. More resources to follow if they are needed :)
