OCR examiners are looking for answers to part (e) questions that reflect the sort of lively debate one would get in a good class. This resource is ideally placed to help generate such debate… Liam the atheist is the star of the show! He states many of the typical comments and misunderstandings people have of Christianity – and all laced with humour. – P Dixon, Teacher, Examiner, Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5484)
'This resource will encourage debate, which will significantly help students answer part (e) questions. This, for me, is the most valuable aspect of the resource: it will get students thinking! I would find them very useful to use both as starter activities and to re-visit once students know more about the subject so they can analyse points in the dialogues at a deeper level... Dialogues are user friendly: clear, making many key points, and presented with humour which will prove popular with students... Sound effects worked well and created a ‘believable’ atmosphere to contextualise the dialogues... Liam, the atheist, is a great character. He makes so many strong points which, I think, many students will be able to relate to. He’s funny as well! Without doubt, for me, the ability to generate debate is the biggest asset of this resource. This will improve students’ answers to part (e) questions, as this is the type of response examiners are looking for in part (e) answers. It will also help students from being one-sided in their analyses, which often happens, since they will have listened to different views from others in the class... As I listened to more and more of these dialogues I started to get the feeling of ‘getting to know’ the characters Liam, Jen and Anna. Students will too.' – P Dixon, Teacher, Examiner, Independent Reviewer
