SPECIAL PLACES PILGRIMAGE UNIT RELIGIOUS EDUCATION RE KS3

SPECIAL PLACES PILGRIMAGE UNIT RELIGIOUS EDUCATION RE KS3

This is quite a large unit - each lesson lasts at least an hour - some lessons last more. There are at least 7 lessons here - but when I taught it, it stretched out longer than that. You are paying for 33 resources in total. The lessons focus on the point of pilgrimage and towards the end, there is some discussion about whether all pilgrimage is religious. It focuses on a mix of world religions deliberately because I wanted to include small parts of Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism that I felt were lacking in my Year 7 curriculum. However, Christianity, Judaism and Islam also feature quite heavily. I used this with Year 7 but it could work with Year 8 as an introduction task - or even as a “nurture” class project and would also be perfect for anyone who home educates. There is a mix of tasks including group work, extended pieces of writing, research tasks, assessment questions and peer/self assessments - as well as a final assessment. My students really enjoyed it. There is also a differentiation booklet of resources for the less able which can be broken down if you would rather. There are also tasks for “fast finishers” and everything is supported with sentence starters and word frames, as well as measurable success criteria for most of the bigger tasks. The unit looks at Lourdes, Mecca, 3 sites in India, Jerusalem and a non religious pilgrimage study of the film “Africa United”. There is homework included in the form of a differentiation “takeaway” homework project. You might have to buy that DVD - it cost me less that £2 on Amazon. There is also a baseline test and hyper links to relevant clips. You could literally download this and be ready to teach in minutes. Enjoy. :)

Building History - Full

Building History - Full

Building History is currently under testing - please see here for your free copy! This page will contain the full edition when completed. Please check out the below! https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/building-history-11872917 Update 07/04/18: Now includes individualised research tasks for each of the 6 main world religions and presentation Powerpoint Building History is a research or creative project for KS3 or 4 students to consider and explore religious history - whether real or imagined. It gives players the chance to invent their own situations using creative higher thinking skills to explain why situations happened, and how we got to where we are today. Building History is split into two distinct areas – This World and Our World. Building History – This World ‘This World’ uses our own history as an example to detail some of the key periods and situations that lead to modern religion. Students take real life histories and explain how and why they came to be, and how they influence the modern world by linking past and present. Students can also take this as a set beginning, adding in different situations and periods before or after to creatively see what impact this may have. But Why? ‘This World’ teaches students how the history of world religions has come about, using a range of creative and evaluative skills, setting them up for new GCSE gradings where they will need to be able to confidently demonstrate a detailed knowledge of religious beliefs and confidently analyse the influence of religion on individuals, communities and societies both today and historically using a range of specialist vocabulary. ‘This World’ also allows for students a wide variety of ways to confidently showcase information. Building History – Our World ‘Our World’ contains everything students need to create a wildly different world – whether it be a fantasy world of elves and dragons or the strange and unusual culture within a futuristic space station. It includes several examples for students to begin with and is easily edited towards different situations, series of work or curriculums. Building History is designed to be used as a project over a series of lessons - however can easily be adapted to shorter lesson timescales or even as a starter. Everything you need to start is included in the Building History PDF document. Building History is currently under testing and therefore is being released free in order to get feedback - please do let me know what you think!
