A level Buddhism workbook

A level Buddhism workbook

(0)
This workbook was designed for my A level group who are studying Buddhism as part of following the Edexcel A level Religious Studies specification (Year 12). With no textbook to use, I wrote a series of questions for each topic that would cover the requirements of the specification and provide students with notes to revise from. It also encouraged independent learning. I would ask students to complete a number of questions prior to each lesson for discussion. There are blank sheets on which I would get my students to stick exam questions from the specimen papers.

Is lying always wrong?

A web-based activity (webquest) that can be used for GCSE or A level students on the ethics of lying. The activity sets up a scenario in which the students have to take on the role of a researcher for a Sunday morning TV programme. The integrity and quality of the programme (and the research) is therefore important. Some links to websites are provided as a starting point.
Student review of the year

Student review of the year

(0)
Tutor time activity. Can be used at any level. In the style of the Academy Awards, students ‘nominate’ the subjects they think they have done well in. This is a good way to get a tutor group to review their performance over the year, or halfway through the year. It can also be useful as a piece of student research into which subjects the students feel most positive about.
