Designing a Unit

The following are two linked presentations that introduce key components of the Awakenings Religious Education Curriculum and the dynamics involved in utilizing and connecting the elements in the design of a unit. Please note that the presentation very much states that RE units are ‘designed’ not ‘planned’ as there is intentionality around the content of Religious Education connecting sincerely to the life and context of the students.

The understanding that supports the Considerations for Selection of a Concept tab is addressed in the second presentation. Within this same presentation, a reference to concepts as ‘fertile ground’ is elaborated upon within a document under the tab Fertile Question.
