Applied Ethics- Euthanasia- OCR A level

Applied Ethics- Euthanasia- OCR A level

Hi all, Here are my lessons that I plan to use for my euthanasia topic which is planned with the OCR spec in mind. All lessons are made with the spec in mind and tried to link the ideas to the required philosophers. For an A-level, I expect students to be bringing in the ethical theories so one extra lessons that doesnt require a slide is a debate. All lessons are ready to be taught. Enjoy

Why do people forgive? PPT

Why do people forgive? PPT

This PowerPoint presentation is the first of three lessons focussing on **Why do people forgive? ** For the accompanying lesson plans and student booklet (plus resources for the other lessons) please visit: Designed for students in YR9 and above, this lesson starts to explore the reasons why people may choose a path of forgiveness through the real-life story of Mary Foley, who lost her child in a violent attack at a 16th birthday party. The lesson enables students to discuss the benefits of forgiveness on people’s physical and emotional well-being and how empathy can influence people’s ability to forgive. The two lessons that follow, further explore compassion and empathy, introducing students to Barry Mizen whose Son Jimmy was killed in his local community. Students look at Desmond Tutu’s cycle of revenge and forgiveness and discuss how empathy for an offender / the offender’s family can impact a journey of forgiveness. This resource can be used within Citizenship, Religious Studies and PSHE or within tutor time discussions or drop down days. Each lesson is designed to last approx one hour. Due to the content of this lesson, it should be facilitated by a staff member who knows the class well and can direct responses and use prompt questions to encourage healthy discussion, whilst maintaining a safe environment for all young people. The resources are available for free download at and include a lesson plan, student booklet and powerpoint for each lesson. In addition The Forgiveness Project organises speakers in schools for assembly, within class time or for special events. Please contact for further information.
