Three Great Resources for Teaching Buddhism in Schools

Introduction to Buddhism (Free)

This resource is a great introduction lesson for students and is offered freely/

Complete GCSE/High School Course (20 Lessons!)

This course has been made specifically for the new OCR B Religious Studies specification (2016 onwards).

It has been designed around the OCR B specification, consequently it is also fully sufficient to teach the AQA specification (and will be useful to teachers teaching on Edexcel, which is slightly different to OCR B/AQA in terms of course contents)

It covers all necessary material for the ‘Beliefs, Teachings & Practices’ section (Section A) of the course in relation to BUDDHISM.

It is the product of many weeks work: I have aimed to make these resources such that every lesson would receive a good or outstanding rating if inspected.

All lesson downloads include:
-A detailed lesson plan: explaining objectives, differentiation, cross-curricular aims, AfL tasks, and an activity timeline.
-A presentation file designed to the highest professional standard.
-Integrated and varied AfL
-A suggested homework task

The course features 15 worksheets, a ‘Buddhist board-game’ template, various ‘knowledge hunt’ activities and also features an IT Suite Lesson. It is designed to be a complete course for the first year of GCSE Religious Studies teaching.

Downloading this bundle will certainly save you many many hours of preparation time: as a practising Buddhist I hope it will allow Religious Studies Teachers to teach the Buddhist component of their chosen GCSE specification.

Positive reviews are warmly welcomed: I have made this course with pride and hope you will find it comprehensive and useful.

“May you be happy, may you be healthy, may you be peaceful.”
