Simple teachings for GCSE RS ethics-based Themes - Judaism

Simple teachings for GCSE RS ethics-based Themes - Judaism

This is a powerpoint presentation for a lesson which sits at the start of delivering the ethics Themes for GCSE RS. This is from a Judaism 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 guidance, and there are some suggestions for different ways of using the materials.

AQA GCSE (9-1) R Specification A - mapping charts for Themes SAMS

AQA GCSE (9-1) R Specification A - mapping charts for Themes SAMS

AQA have published Specimen Materials (SAMS) for their new Specifications. This document maps out the questions from the two sets of SAMS for the Themes papers against the actual specification content. Each Theme is addressed in A-F order. It allows any teacher to see all the questions which have been asked so far. This document can be used to work out a mock exam which does not just replicate the SAMS as it shows the gaps in what has been asked so far. It can also be used as the startpoint for adding actual exam questions when the papers have been sat - so saving a lot of time for teachers in preparation for that.
