Teaching Religion and Philosophy
With Dylan Bartlett and Jeremy Hall
Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane, Hobart & Auckland
From vision to classroom reality, Dylan and Jeremy will share a wide-ranging and versatile unit for the middle school classroom (Years 7-10).
This unit models a ‘personal search’ approach to Religious and Values Education (RaVE) and shows how RaVE can be at the centre of the secondary curriculum as a lively, relevant, inter-disciplinary subject that promotes critical thinking skills and enhances personal development.
The course will be a valuable opportunity for RaVE and Philosophy teachers, as well as pastoral leaders responsible for well-being programs.
