Help! KS3 Religious Education Schemes of Work

Discussion in 'Religious Education' started by TheGDA, May 1, 2011.

  1. We are not at a stage to teach GCSE yet but we would most probably teach Unit 4 and 8 (or 11).
    I would be happy looking at anything really. Like I said earlier, I am quite flexible.
  2. See what each unit is for 4 and how you could build on that. In terms of unit 8 we do a scheme of work on the environment, war, explore capital punishment in one about making moral decisions. Hope this helps?

    is there no guidance in you agreed syllabus?
    I have written my KS3 syllabus for this year and whilst I have covered some GCSE themes with year 9 there is no way I would have attempted it with 7 or 8 because they still need basic guidance.
  4. Thanks
  5. Was that meant to help me or to turn people away?
    And what is it that you will achieve by doing so?

    My you are going to be busy. By my reckoning you have at least 10 schemes of work to do all in different subjects. The ability to search a user's previous posts is very helpful sometimes.
    Why should people give up their time to help you? Clearly you have reasons for wanting schemes of work in so many subjects that are not your own. I wonder what you could be hoping to do with them.
    Don't bother with a curt reply - I am not easily offended. It comes with teaching for many years.
  7. It may help you to know that there is a new KS3 book on Islam to be published in September. (I am the author.) The book is called Religions to InspiRE: Islam, and is part of the InspiRE series, published by Hodder Education. The series consists of three thematic books (Themes to InspiRE) for Years 7 – 9, and each theme can be studied in greater depth within one faith or across more than one in the Religions to InspiRE books. The Themes books provide a complete scheme of work for KS3 that can be customised using the Religions books.

    Hope this helps.

  8. Simply providing information. I personally,like to understand the context of a request.
    I suggest that honestly, the best advice you can get at this point is to appoint a specialist and pay them to create a meaningful scheme of work. Nothing you are given here or on any other forum will replace the insight and professionalism of a specialist with an understanding of your particular students, area and agenda.
    As a teacher, I am sure you are aware of the care, blood, sweat and tears that we put into quality bespoke schemes of work for our own schools and teams. It is inevitable that there is some sensitivity to 'catch all' requests rather than advice or support.
    If you have something to share/ improve on/ start with I am sure you would get much more meaningful and targeted advice.
    I understand you feel under attack but I suggest that attack is not always the best form of defence.
    I wish you and your potential students the best of luck.
  9. Thank you for the information.
    I will have a look.
  10. Being an Independent School with minimal fees, it would be difficult to pay the high salaries of a specialist.
    Thanks for your help.
