Any ideas - Islam CPD

Discussion in 'Religious Education' started by leviosa, May 15, 2012.

  1. I need to do some inset with staff who are teaching Religion & Society next year. They are fine with Christainity as they do Unit 2 Religion and Life Christianity.
    I was hoping to get an outsider in but that's not happening now - any ideas as to what/how to deliver this - all are non specialists, some very expereinced, some haven't taught any RE at all before. Some are comfortable with KS3 Islam knowledge others know nothing.

    Help!

  3. How much time do you have? Is there anyway you could pop to a local Mosque?
    If not, how about something experiential? I still remember aspects of Sue Phillips teaching us Judaism during my PGCE... Maybe you could build a Mosque? Or do a market place activity breaking up the stuff they need to know for unit? Each group has an aspect of the course, say family, war etc. You could mix up the staff with more & less confident/experienced.
    Guess you should treat it like a lesson!
    Gruffy
     
  4. Some good ideas thanks - I really want them to feel confident on the teachings side of things - concepts like ummah. I have done some introductory lessons for the children so hopefully that will cover the basics with staff too.
     
  5. On a TEEP inset we did a task where we were given information on certain topics that we had to divide amongst ourselves read and sum up into a TEEP circle (a circle divided into as many boxes as there are people) you then had to present your bit back to your group. It was great and the information really stuck because you were listening to each other not the same person.
