What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6883)

A really high quality resource, an excellent set of notes for students to take away and the potential for lots of revision time to be saved in class. I really like these resources. I particularly like the layout, they look really attractive and work well for students’ revision. I like that there is a version that has blanks with it and can be filled in, lots of time saved with this. There is nothing I really dislike about this... Really well presented, it's what I like best about this resources. You could never make something as professional and as thorough as this yourself at home. – E Hodkinson, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

Comprehensive, well organised and well formatted. It breaks down the different topics into manageable chunks and the fact that there is a topic per page means that students aren't overwhelmed by the material but can work through it methodically. As we approach the mock exams, these resources have proved invaluable as revision resources. They are also useful for students who have finished the classwork and who need some consolidation / extension activities while the rest of the class catches up. As this is for the new specification, which we're still trying to get our heads around, this resource has saved my department a huge amount of time as we haven't needed to spend hours making revision sources and activities for students. It has also been really useful having electronic copies that we can edit slightly or put on our school learning platform so that students can work through the resources at their own pace." R Mackie, HoD and Satisfied Customer

'A brilliant resource. The information is clear and well presented... The resource is excellent and can be used in a wide variety of ways. It provides a clear and accurate starting point and potential revision resource.' – S O'Connell, Head of RS & Happy Customer

'Really excellent. Very detailed, good use of quotes and key information.Students really liked the A3 sheets to complete – good layout. Sets out the key information – topic per page – clear and concise. Better than just having the text book; students can annotate and highlight material.' – M Lewis, Customer, Head of RS, Nottingham Girls High School

“Brilliant! I love this concept… Will create that priceless commodity amongst teachers: confidence… This resource will greatly enhance learning… I like the posters… The idea of students filling in the gaps and being able to cross-reference the right answer on a separate page is a great idea too… There is nothing I dislike about this resource… Will act as a fantastic revision tool… The resource will be especially helpful as a ‘cover-all’ for any students who have had to endure extended periods of absence from school. The writing tasks ensure that students properly engage with the content of the specification… Presentation and layout are excellent… Information is reinforced on easier-to-digest sub-topic pages. Excellent!... It matches the specification exactly… In theory, all schools should need this… The quality is phenomenal… An inordinate amount of thought and effort has clearly gone into producing this resource… I honestly cannot see any way that this resource could be improved!... This resource should be close to the top of every Head of RE’s priority list for their budget.” – C Pountain, Head of RE, Examiner and Independent Reviewer

'Really good basic information with clear layout. It is quick and convenient – saves me hours of work.' – J Wade, Customer, Lead Teacher of RE, Hodgson Academy

'I thought this was a good resource which comprehensively covers the specification... it would make a good set of revision posters which in my experience is something that students like to have. Visually the use of boxes and arrows to organise information is also appealing to students... I liked the fact that it covers the whole section of the specification and that it could act as a springboard for students to explore the points in more detail. Given that this is now a linear specification and so students could be revising for this nearly two years after studying it then this will act as a nice refresher, reminding them what key points they need to go back to their notes and look at... I would probably go through it in a lesson with my students, getting them to shade the sections with different coloured highlighters so that they could clearly see it when at home... I like the author’s idea of blank versions which students where students could fill in the missing sections. Very often teachers struggle with revision activities and so this could provide activities spread across a few lessons... Looking at the AQA approved OUP text book the majority of the terminology used is the same, which would help to avoid confusion.' – H Matltby, Head of Philosophy and Religion, Independent Reviewer

Very good resource for lesson planning and has many different topics which lessons can be planned around... it gives examples which can be used in the final exam." – C Green, Teacher & Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (8182,8192)

Really good I would thoroughly recommend it to others, the layouts are beautiful and they will make excellent revision activities either at the end of the unit or before the exam... Could see them being completed by students for homework or as part of an assessment in class too. A top quality resource. – E Hodkinson, HoD and Independent Reviewer

This is a really useful resource and can be used as a knowledge organiser for the whole subject. The sheets that come with it are great for revision. It has tonnes of information on, clearly laid out and covers everything needed for the specification. I use this in multiple ways - I set homework on specific parts of it to check knowledge on what we've already covered. For revision purposes I give them the sheets with 'fill in' spaces on and they do as much as they can, they then get the full sheets to check their work and fill in any gaps in their understanding." Nicola, HoD and Satisfied Customer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (8753,8990)

It’s a really good resource, it will be used by teachers who are non-specialists to improve their subject knowledge and it also works as an ‘easy on the eye’ resource for students to use for revision and as a knowledge organiser at the start of the topic. It is very user friendly... I really like the way the resource flows and ‘does what it says on the tin’ – it really is a topic on a page! Very well, offers opportunities for students to develop their understanding of beliefs, teachings and practices - these are difficult concepts for students and it allows these to be explored/revised in an easier way... I would purchase, and recommend this resource for both teachers and students. I will be encouraging some members of my team who are non-specialists to use this resource to develop their own knowledge and understanding. – E Clark, HoD, and Independent Reviewers
