Students explore how the Bible is interpreted in different ways and use the case study to contrast the interpretation of the Golden Rule by Judy Shepard to that of the Westboro Baptist Church.

Students will look at recent case studies, all of which have been rewritten in a structured and accessible manner. Thought the SOW is designed to last 6 lessons, the level of discussion and debate provoked means that the SOW is easily extended.

Links to youtube clips are written into ppts with additional notes below. Homework is designed to feed in to the lessons and further develop debate and discussion in the classroom.
