This is a series of 3 lessons based on Crime, Evil and Suffering and an assessment lesson based around a 15 mark answer. (Lesson aims are below) It focusses on breaking down the quotes related to the topic but there is also scope for the students to give their own personal reflections on aspects of the learning. The assesment lesson works through a modelled answer and helps students undestand the need to planning in longer questions.
I have used both the Oxford Press and Hodder textbooks to plan the lessons.
I have found the the new spec really interesting but it has a lot more content, which is great, but it's also really challenging for lower ability students. My students (higher and lower) have found this approach more structured and have assimilated the knowledge more readily when working in lessons structured like this.
I am just testing the water and haven't published resources before so would be grateful for feedback. If it's positive I'll happily plan some more!
