Gateways

small-thumbnailThe REsilience programme has developed a a series of Gateways - a range of materials to support teachers in tackling controversial issues which may arise in RE lessons.

Each Gateway document responds to key questions:

  • Why is this a contentious topic?
  • Why is RE relevant to this topic?
  • What classroom challenges might arise in RE?
  • How can teachers address such challenges?

Each Gateway also gives suggestions for further reading and resources.

There are four sections - each reponding to a section of the Self Evaluation Questionnaire

  • Section 1: KEY QUESTIONS AT THE HEART OF RELIGIOUS CONTROVERSY
  • Section 2: TEACHING AND LEARNING ABOUT CONTENTIOUS ISSUES
  • Section 3: MANAGEMENT ISSUES
  • Section 4: CURRICULUM ISSUES
