RE GCSE AQA Religion, Peace and Conflict - L4 Just War and Holy War

RE GCSE AQA Religion, Peace and Conflict - L4 Just War and Holy War

This is the fourth lesson in this unit which covers the religious approach to permitting war in certain circumstances. There is an information and worksheet which comprises tasks to establish learning and also some exam skills - using teachings. This would be ideal for a single lesson and could also even be used in cover circumstances and it pretty much enables the students to teach themselves. I teach in doubles so the second part of the lesson deals with JWT. Finally a master class on Q4 - the 5 marker applying teachings

RE GCSE AQA Exam Skills Tutorial - Q4

RE GCSE AQA Exam Skills Tutorial - Q4

A two sided tutorial showing students how to answer the 5 marker question 4, on teachings. This one was developed within the Religion, Peace and Conflict unit so the example is on forgiveness, but that could be changed. I have also included this sheet in the lesson that I have for sale in this unit called L4 Just War and Holy War.

RE GCSE AQA Themes - Religion, Peace and Conflict L3 Extreme Positions

RE GCSE AQA Themes - Religion, Peace and Conflict L3 Extreme Positions

This lesson is a double (in our college it lasts almost 2 hours) so it has a huge amount of content. You could easily split it up into 2 or 3 shorter lesson as suits. It covers the three extreme positions in the spec - violent protest, terrorism and WMD. I have included discussion, opportunities for note taking and activities. Please be aware I have included a 'terrorism bingo' task. This is in no way meant to cause any offence at all. This whole course contains some quite 'dark' topics so I have simply used a slightly more upbeat way of introducing the terrorist events that have happened so that they can use them as examples. Please do not use this PPT if you are likely to be offended - my students are used to my way of teaching and therefore it will be no problem, but the last thing that I would ever want to do would be to cause upset. The answers for the bingo are on the notes section of the slide. I have also included a homework task which practices the Q3 contrasting question and the mark scheme from the specimen paper on the AQA website to help them with the trickiness of support of WMD.

This is the second lesson in the Religion, Peace and Conflict unit of the AQA RE GCSE themes paper. There are tasks and clips embedded into the PPT and a knowledge checker at the end for the students to assess their progress.
