“The Year 13 conference at St Paul’s was fabulous. Exactly what my students needed to remind them of the wonder and mystery and rigour of the course.” M. Thomas Outstanding A Level RS London

Faith! is our brand new event to support Year 13 students studying for Year 2 A Level Religious Studies.  It is suitable for ALL EXAMINATION BOARDS (OCR, AQA, EDEXCEL, EDUQAS) and covers core Philosophy of Religion and Religious Ethics content.

It is clear that the new specifications for A Level Religious Studies present all teachers with a challenge: how to cover so much material while also holding students’ interest and building their love for the subject.

.

“Faith” has been specially designed to enrich and extend Year 13 students’ learning and covers topics specified by ALL ENGLISH EXAMINATION BOARDS for the full A Level (Year 2 study) in Religious Studies, but also relevant for those studying towards CIE PreU and IB Diploma options.

.

Sessions will cover…

.

1. The Ontological Argument (with a model essay on this topic)
2. Religious Language (with a group discussion on this topic)
3. Divine Omniscience & Moral Responsibility (with essay-planning activity)
4. Conscience & Sex (with a 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.

.

Remember, with Candle, every student receives full-colour, printed notes!  Developed exclusively for Candle and providing a wealth of scholarly quotations and short extracts of primary texts, reading lists, revision tips, advice on essay structure, model essays and plenty of suggested tasks and activities, our notes ensure that students don’t have to spend their time writing down AO1 information but that they do practice writing skills for AO2 during each session. Teachers get digital downloads and FREE CPD as well!
