KS3 SOW RS- Introduction to Greek Philosophy Truth. Fully resourced with Assessment

A fully resourced (9 lessons and 1 assessment) SOW which I have delivered to both Y7 and Y8 to introduce the Greek philosophers Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. All students engaged really well with the content and really enjoyed learning about content normally reserved for 'a level.' The high level knowledge is broken up over 9 lessons and developed upon in each leading to a written assessment piece. Lessons Titles include: Types of truth, Socrates, Socratic Dialogue, Plato, The Analogy of the cave, Aristotle, Comparison of philosophers and then revision. The running these throughout is their attitude to truth. Enjoy and please rate. All feedback is welcomed.

Introduction to utilitarianism

Introduction to utilitarianism

This lesson introduces students to the theory of utilitarianism according to Jeremy Bentham and Hedonic calculus. The lesson encourages students to first think from their personal opinion before responding to moral situations as utilitarian. Information and task sheets have been included. The lesson was planned in accordance with OCR a level specification but could also be used with KS4 students but I assume it would need longer to cover with them (at least 2 hours).
