A COMPREHENSIVE TEACHING RESOURCE FOR RELIGIOUS STUDIES

* Available as e-books in pdf format, these sets provide stimulating, affordable, education resources for schools, higher education and lifelong learning.

* The images can be displayed on a whiteboard, or printed out for individual and group use. Teachers will find the guides easy to work with.

 

THESE TEACHING GUIDES unfold the history and beliefs of six world faiths through carefully selected works of art, accompanied by clear and comprehensive text including suggested classroom activities.Spiritual concepts have always been expressed through painting, sculpture, architecture and other arts.
Religious art clearly identifies a faith's key features, and can reveal the similarities between traditions — such as the "great flood", often a feature of "creation" stories.
Images of sacred buildings, representations of gods, goddesses, saints and artefacts used for worship put religions into a cultural context.
Comparing the aesthetic style of major religions clarifies the striking differences in their philosophies to life and death.

 

This is a refreshingly adaptable series for schools. The selection of images, drawn from a vast range of resources provides a comprehensive series of pictures which, used in their entirety, provide a balanced introduction to each religion. The accompanying notes provide a good overview of the faith. Teachers from all key stages will find them a valuable resource, although they will be of particular relevance at Key Stages 3 and 4. A highly recommended resource.” RE Today
