What is Religion? (Webinar)

Course Date: 23 May 2017

Date: Tuesday 23 May 4pm–5pm

Location: Online

Trainer: Kate Christopher

Cost: £30 (Discounts available to NATRE members)

How far is religion about doctrine, and how far is it about what people do and who they do it with?

Philosopher Kwame Anthony Appiah suggests that religious identity is too often expressed as a set of beliefs at the expense of practice and community.

This webinar explores this idea. Through classroom-ready teaching ideas and resources, we will consider how to represent religious identity in its multiple, messy, ‘lived’ state. This could form the basis of a KS3 unit of work entitled ‘What is Religion?’, or offer starters and activities when working with specific religions and themes.

Ideal for refreshing your planning with up-to-date ideas, considering fresh ways to approach religion and the chance to reflect on what we teach and why. Perfect for all Secondary teachers, suitable for Key Stage 2 teachers.
