    I just finished creating this bundle of 20 high quality lessons about Buddhism for GCSE classes.

    I was motivated to create the resource as I felt a lot of teachers wanted to teach Buddhism but there hasn't been much offered to facilitate that choice: where plenty of resources already exist to teach Christianity at GCSE level, there wasn't much about Buddhism.

    This course has been made specifically for the new OCR B Religious Studies specification (2016 onwards).

    It has been designed around the OCR B specification, consequently it is also fully sufficient to teach the AQA specification (and will be useful to teachers teaching on Edexcel, which is slightly different to OCR B/AQA in terms of course contents)

    It covers all necessary material for the 'Beliefs, Teachings & Practices' section (Section A) of the course in relation to BUDDHISM.

    It is the product of many weeks work: I have aimed to make these resources such that every lesson would receive a good or outstanding rating if inspected.

    All lesson downloads include:
    -A detailed lesson plan: explaining objectives, differentiation, cross-curricular aims, AfL tasks, and an activity timeline.
    -A presentation file designed to the highest professional standard.
    -Integrated and varied AfL
    -A suggested homework task

    The course features 15 worksheets, a 'Buddhist board-game' template, various 'knowledge hunt' activities and also features an IT Suite Lesson. It is designed to be a complete course for the first year of GCSE Religious Studies teaching.

    Downloading this bundle will certainly save you many many hours of preparation time: as a practising Buddhist I hope it will allow Religious Studies Teachers to teach the Buddhist component of their chosen GCSE specification.
