Key topics explored include: What is creative teaching and learning? Why is it important to teach creatively and teach for creativity? What is Religious Education?

The place of religious education in the elementary curriculum is an ambiguous one for many teachers. Using a mixture of theory and practical ideas, this book will help all elementary teachers, whether specialists or not, to deliver effective religious education. Terence Copley clarifies the legal framework, discusses problem areas like the withdrawal of children from the subject and examines key principles and concepts involved in teaching the main areas of religious education. He also looks at practical issues of classroom organization and at how religious education can be integrated into topic work but should also remain a subject in its own right.

In much of the world, religious traditions are seriously valued but, in the context of religious plurality, this sets educationalists an enormous challenge. This book provides a way forward in exploring religious life whilst showing how bridges might be built between diverse religious traditions. Teaching Virtue puts engagement with religious life - and virtue ethics - at the heart of religious education, encouraging 'learning from' religion rather than 'learning about' religion. The authors focus on eight key virtues, examining these for what they can offer of religious value to pupils and teachers. Individual chapters put the discussion into context by offering a vision of what religious education in the future could look like; the need for responsible religious education; a historical review of moral education and an introduction to virtue ethics. Lesson plans and examples demonstrate how the virtues may be approached in the classroom, making it an invaluable guide for all involved in teaching religious education.

In the current climate, and in an age of increasing hostility towards religion and the study of religion, religious education is a much-debated area. Bringing together an interdisciplinary team of contributors from the USA, Britain and Ireland, and Australia, representing a variety of religious perspectives, Does Religious Education Matter? provocatively demonstrates that it is vital that religious education is presented as it ’really’ is: a valuable and rich resource that, when taught and engaged with appropriately, stimulates essential qualities for global and responsible citizenship: critical thinking, tolerance, respect, and mutual understanding.

This book is based on the vision that religious education (RE) can be taught creatively, with relevance to the lives of teachers and their pupils today, in predominantly secular society. RE should be taught from the perspective of knowledge and understanding of religions, to foster tolerance and to dispel prejudice and misunderstanding, without any attempt to influence children’s personal beliefs. The philosophy which underpins this book is the belief that RE is best taught within an integrated approach to the humanities. The humanities are about what it is to be human, in time and place and in terms of belief. Therefore, RE is linked with history, geography, and the creative arts within five themes: human survival, light and dark, leadership, the environment, and time and motion. As well, there is accurate and detailed subject knowledge about the six major world faiths and plays/scenes about them written and produced in schools by myself. The book is in alignment with the British National Curriculum, which requires that RE is taught in schools, and with the latest Ofsted Report (2010), which states that there is a need for guidance for teachers, and more creative and innovative approaches to link RE with the wider curriculum.
