The Your RE CDRom and book interactive hoopla

Discussion in 'Religious Education' started by Delbertino, Jun 29, 2011.

  1. Wondering if anyone has tried out the Your RE book and CDRom from Heinemann as I'm thinking of buying it for KS3 next year buthave a very small budget so need to justify the expense.
    Its looks shiny and new with bells and whistles but do you think it really delivers?
  2. We ordered the inspection package today but are even more intrigued by Hodder's 'inspiRE' range. Inspection copies also ordered. Watch this space. . .
    In the light of the nationwide RS 'situation' it is encouraging to see so much 'new stuff' on offer!

  3. the InspiRE are really good! We have the Christianity textbooks and I have pre ordered Islam ready for when they are published. I really wanted books that dealt with religions rather than themes as I find that there is too much that I might not use in theme based books?
    I also have a set of YourRE, it is a very thick textbook and fairly comprehensive. I actually purchased it to be used to support GCSE aswell as KS3 as a lot of the themes cover GCSE topics. Unfortunately my budget could not cover the interactive element so I would be interested to know what it is like and if it is worth the money?

    I have the first InspiRE book, and have been using the Ethics and Values unit as a guideline for my Year 7s this term (currently making El Salvador Crosses based on the life of Oscar Romero as part of social justice). I've been quite pleased with it as a resource, though a lot of the activities are 'research' activities which don't really work for us at our school.

    I have a Your RE book and have been looking at the CD demo online. The publishers were due to do a presentation on it this week at the school in Oxford that have been trialing it but it was cancelled through lack of interest.

    What appeals to me is the ability to set up plans and resources for non-specialists. I've given a copy of the book to my non-specialist to have a look through.

    I've just been on the pearson website and they appear to have knocked about £200 off the CD!
