This is a powerpoint presentation for a lesson which sits at the start of delivering the ethics Themes for GCSE RS. This is from an Islam perspective. Whilst written for the AQA Themes, it does fit the same Themes for any of the exam boards. The point of the materials is to show students that they already know lots about the Themes, which they can use as they learn in more depth. It is also to show them that a few teachings go a long way. It is true that the exam boards want to see specific teachings for topics, and want students to apply those Themes, rather than using the same few generic quotes every time. However, it is also true that those generic quotes do have a multitude of applications as they are what the religion boils down to in its basic moral guidance. So this powerpoint is based on that latter fact!
Use the powerpoint in its entirety with students who need to speed through the course for whatever reason, or with students who need a simpler chunk of knowledge. This gives a baseline from which to work in studying in depth, and one to fall back on if exam anxiety kicks in. Within the powerpoint there are notes for each slide as teacher guidance, and there are some suggestions for different ways of using the materials.
