Written by Louise Hutton and Dawn Cox, Making Every RE Lesson Count: Six principles to support religious education teaching brings together the latest curriculum developments with evidence-informed practice and shares practical strategies for use in the RE classroom.
Dr Wendy Dossett, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, University of Chester:
This accessible yet challenging book espouses an approach to religious education which balances the disciplines of theology, philosophy and the social sciences. Practising what they preach, Louise Hutton and Dawn Cox show RE teachers how to reflect on the principles which inform their work. They diagnose the widespread and well-meant strategies which result in mediocre RE and prescribe significantly deeper thinking about their aims and outcomes. They bring the latest pedagogical research into direct conversation with RE content. Teachers who make use of this book will undoubtedly raise the standard of RE teaching in their schools and contribute significantly to the religious, literacy and cultural capital of their students.
