A Programme for Anglican and Presbyterian Schools of Aotearoa New Zealand.
This page provides links to all the resources we have created for the Middle School Theology Course, along with some miscellaneous other resources for those who are not using the MST. We hope to build up those latter resources as chaplains and RE teachers share what they are using.
The MST course began when we realised how often we answer questions in RE that students aren't asking, so we decided to find out what did puzzle or intrigue them about life, God and the universe. You won't find worksheets here and very rarely is a computer opened, but you will find complete units of work, including all necessary resources, which will guide your students to wonder and discuss and puzzle through some seriously Big Questions.
For a general introduction, read the information sheet we prepared for parents here.
For a quick overview of all available units, go here.
It's an unusual approach to RE, so if you want to start the course, it's a good idea to contact Anne at the Office first to talk it over in more detail. We'd recommend a test drive with some of the Lite units first. More will become available in the next few months.
MST Notes & Extras
These notes provide extra ideas on running the MST course. They include a space for you to add questions that your students are asking so that we can create more units around them.
