SP153-21 Non-Exam LC Religious Education (R.E.): A series of approaches and topics to discuss and explore with senior cycle students

Non-Exam LC Religious Education (R.E.): A series of approaches and topics to discuss and explore with senior cycle students - 13, 27 Apr, 11 May @ 7pm
DATE: Tuesday, 13 April, Tuesday, 27 April and Tuesday, 11 May
TIME: 7pm to 8pm

In the last number of years from being in a variety of school environments I have seen how teaching and approaching non exam religion has had to be totally changed in terms of content, methodologies and approaches to conventional topics.

This three-night webinar will look at the following topics in three separate sections of the senior cycle curriculum:

World Religions: The idea of the cult and new religious movement. Most people will have taught this topic in some form but I will look beyond conventional topics such as Scientology or Branch Davidians. It will look at things such as QAnon, Cargo Cults and Wicca/Modern Day Paganism and more.

Moral Decision Making: How to approach very difficult topics that are becoming more and more relative and how to approach them objectively yet informatively. Topics include IVF Treatment, Contraception, Vaccine Culture and Gender Issues.

Issues of Justice and Peace: Exploring modern day slavery and how even in the modern day it still exists in western culture as well as the developing world. It will explore the Black Lives Matter movement and also, how slavery is a very broad topic defined by not just one sentence alone.
