Bringing the new GCSE Religious Studies curriculum to life
22 August 2016
Susan Kambalu is CAFOD’s Secondary School INSET Coordinator. In this blog she explains how she has worked with teachers to share a global dimension of the new Religious Studies GCSE.
One of the aspects I really enjoy in my role training teachers about global justice issues, is getting to trial and share new resources. It’s even more satisfying when a resource I’ve developed for training purposes becomes a classroom resource as a response to teacher requests.
This recently happened with our new Catholic Social Teaching cards (CST cards). When I used them in training, teachers would comment on how useful they would be in their lessons. These have now become one of our key resources to support the new GCSE Religious Studies specifications.
