“Happiness?” has been specially designed to enrich and extend Year 12 students’ learning and covers topics specified by ALL ENGLISH EXAMINATION BOARDS for the AS Level or Year 1 A Level in Religious Studies, and also relevant for those studying towards CIE PreU and IB Diploma options.
1. The Problem of Evil & Suffering (with group-discussion)
2. The Teleological Argument (with model essay on this topic)
3. Utilitarianism (with an essay-planning activity on this topic)
4. Euthanasia (with a lively debate on this topic)
Far from being boring exam-cramming – or a solid day of lectures with limited relevance to the A Level course – our student events are carefully tailored to the requirements of the A Level specifications and feature online quizzes, discussions, model essays, a debate – often with concurrent twitter poll – as well as Q&A sessions and short written activities plus university-style lectures from scholars named in the new specifications..
During the day, students will apply the knowledge and understanding they have developed to typical A Level questions, practicing their skills in…..
○ Making academic judgments,
○ Framing a thesis and developing supporting reasons,
○ Analysing & engaging with scholarly debate,
○ Identifying & evaluating counter-claims
○ Building to a justified, persuasive conclusion.
