We will be following a WJEC course—Religion and Life Issues.
There are five units we have to complete:
- Our World
- Is it Fair
- Looking for Meaning
In all the modules the examiners will be looking for three skills:
- Knowledge – you must be able to recall, select, organise and use your knowledge of the course content.
- Understanding – you must be able to describe how someone’s religious beliefs affect the way they live e.g. dress or what they are allowed to eat.
- Evaluation – evaluate different responses to religious and moral issues. e.g. “Believing in creation stories is not possible in our modern scientific world”.
We will be looking at the religious beliefs of Christians and Muslims (Islam) throughout the 5 units.
We will NOT be doing course work, we will be sitting an examination on all Five Units in June 2010. The exam is 1 hour 50 minutes and will give you a GCSE Short Course qualification.
We had brilliant results following this course last year and next year’s will be!!
