AQA GCSE RELIGIOUS STUDIES – REVISION TEMPLATES FOR THEME B – LIFE

AQA GCSE RELIGIOUS STUDIES – REVISION TEMPLATES FOR THEME B – LIFE

This resource provides a set of templates for students to make notes on for AQA Theme B – Religion and Life. The templates cover all the topics within the Theme. It can be used in a revision session as the teacher does Q and A; can be used between students for them to complete from their memory (information retrieval being a more effective form of revision than simple note taking) or from notes; can be set as homework to complete after the Theme has been studied. Once completed, it gives the student a revision resource which they have engaged in and completed, so they are more likely to remember. Central is a provocative statement on the topic (which is stated at the bottom of the page for clarity) to trigger discussion. Each template is split into key words, beliefs/teachings about, influence and diversity – which is where the student makes their notes. There is no religion specified in the templates, so they can be used in any classroom.

Topic’s and areas completely covered are as follows; Christian Beliefs. The Trinity. Creation The incarnation The last days of Jesus’ life. Salvation. Christian eschatology. The problem of evil. Divergent solutions to the problem of evil. Marriage and Family. Marriage. Sexual relationships. Families. Support for the family in the local parish. Contraception. Divorce. Equality of men and women in the family. Gender prejudice and discrimination. Living the Christian Life. Christian worship. The sacraments. Prayer. Pilgrimage, Christian celebrations.

Life and death. Responses to arguments against life after death. Euthanasia. Issues in the national world. There are more lessons in most topics as there are some areas that obviously need a little more learning time than others. I hope this makes your life easier. Took me hours.
