Secularisation / Fundamentalism Revision Games

Revision time for GCSEs and A Levels is upon us, and students up and down the land are no doubt spending every possible hour practicing past papers and creating technicolour mind maps. Or am I just being wildly optimistic?

Here are some revision activities on Secularisation and Fundamentalism, from the WJEC Religion and Community topic for AS. I find they work nicely as quick starters, helping students consolidate their knowledge of key terms, while giving me an overview of what areas might need extra clarification and revision. Included are keywords for an Articulate style game, keyword pairs, and some suggestions for different revision activities using the keywords. Plenty to keep your students busy!

Also of use might be these student revision self-assessment sheets for fundamentalism and secularisation.

World Book Day Shelfie

Today is World Book Day, which celebrates books, authors and reading around the world. To mark the occasion, my school's English Department are running a little competition, where teachers submit a shelfie - a photo of their bookshelf - and students have to guess which photo belongs to which teacher.

So in the spirit of inter-departmental co-operation, here is my shelfie:

I'm travelling between places a fair amount at the moment, so I've most recently been reading e-books. Perhaps next year I'll be taking a picture of my kindle and a screenshot of my goodreads account?
