What do teachers say about this resource? (11589)
Overall, an extremely useful resource. The vocabulary lists are rich and exhaustive. I think this resource will be very reassuring for teachers of the Judaism course insofar as it ensures everything is covered and pupils are adequately prepared for their examination. Because of the comprehensive nature of this resource, covering, as it does, the whole of the ‘beliefs and teachings’ part of the specification, this resource acts as a highly effective course companion. I can see it being used as a teaching resource in class or as a resource to support home learning, with plenty of high-quality written tasks included. I feel this resource matches and interprets the specification perfectly. It is precisely married to the requirements of the exam board in my view. As such, it is extremely helpful. The vocabulary lists will support the answering of the lower mark carrying questions (1 & 2). The practice questions, along with the answers are also extremely helpful, as well as the advice on how to answer the different kinds of questions.

An absolutely fantastic resource - exactly what is needed for a thorough yet concise overview. It really goes into the course in depth... The students get lots of information in an easily digestible format. It is laid out in a way that is easy to understand. The practice material is relevant to the actual assessment - not only does it check understanding of the page but offers valuable exam practice. Great resource!
Excellent resource. The format and layout is excellent and aids in the understanding of the students
Extremely informative and interesting... I actually think that this may be better than the OUP textbook we currently have... I really like that the answers are provided for the questions, this is something the textbooks lack
Very useful – it has saved me loads of time and has excellent detail. I intend to used it both in lessons and as a revision guide for pupils. It contains everything needed for the course including knowledge based questions in the exam style format. Thank you for another excellent resource!

Brilliantly presented and extremely useful - I used it every lesson. It covers everything on the syllabus and is good for breadth and depth. This will replace a textbook or online searching. It has activities and practice questions. It also has activities that are more exam style.
Excellent. Great for staff subject knowledge development and for stretching higher ability students. Perfectly matched to new specification. Definitely buy – great for class and revision notes

An incredibly valuable and detailed resource, so useful when it comes to the teaching of this really rather difficult course. So many scriptural references that are really difficult to find for Buddhism. Far better than any textbook or document from the exam board

The resource is a very useful one for enhancing learning. It could be used as a whole class teaching tool or for an individual to learn independently... I think this is an excellent resource... I would purchase this and use it in my teaching
Excellent resource. It really helped with developing subject knowledge for staff and students. It was produced with the AQA exam in mind
Mirrors the specification well and good range of engaging activities… Comprehensive resource for revision, promotes active learning through the range of activities and exam questions. Resource can be used in lessons, tasks set for homework and revision… I like that key words are highlighted throughout [drawing] pupil’s attention to their importance and use… Mark schemes for possible responses are thorough [which] will be invaluable to teachers teaching this new specification
