This bundle contains ten fully resourced and professionally designed KS4 Religious Studies lessons as well as additional teaching materials for GCSE Religious Studies: Thematic Studies.
It has been created for the latest AQA GCSE Religious Studies Specification and covers the thematic study 'Religion, Crime & Punishment' (Theme E) and focuses on Christian teachings. It should be useful to all GCSE Religious Studies teachers: even if using other specifications.
The download includes 10 Lessons, though some can be used over two 1-hour periods:
2) Central Debates
3) The Causes of Crime
4) Responses to Crime
5) Christian Teachings About Crime & Criminals
6) The Aims & Effectiveness of Punishment
7) ICT Suite Lesson
8) Corporal & Capital Punishment
9) Assessment Lesson
10) Unit Overview (Video-Learning Worksheet Lesson)
Each lesson contains a PowerPoint, Lesson Plan and most contain worksheets. All are fully resources and ready to be used for teaching.
The bundle also includes:
-A Personal Learning Checklist (PLC) for this unit
-A DIRT/AfL Worksheet
-The Christian Ethical Debate Generator
For most RE teachers this download includes everything you need to teach this thematic study, not including the comparative religion aspect of the thematic study.
Lessons about comparative religious traditions will be released at a later date as "bolt-ons" to this 10-lesson unit.
International (non-UK) buyers should note that these resources are made using British English (though they are, for the most part, easy to edit). They are made for British GCSE (KS4 / Middle School / 14-16) students and designed to meet the requirements of the AQA GCSE Religious Studies course.
These resources are not "confessional" (not aiming to convert or convince students), but encourage an objective study and analysis of Christian religious beliefs and encourage healthy debates, critical thinking, and a balanced and reasoned exploration of issues. Their focus is on Christian ethics and philosophy.
