Product reviews for Making Every RE Lesson Count

John Morris, Director, JTM Educational Consultant
Drawing on their vast personal and teaching experiences, Louise Hutton and Dawn Cox take the teaching of RE to an extra level with Making Every RE Lesson Count. They have produced an inspiring, challenging yet practically supportive analysis of RE in terms of extending the content's relevance to the learner. The focus is on encouraging interaction through a range of opportunities and strategies to develop religious, cultural and language awareness and a better understanding of their own views. 

The authors have adopted a -˜three lenses' approach - encompassing theology, philosophy and the social sciences - to encourage readers to consider further development of a challenging curriculum with a purpose. They then marry the -˜what we teach' structure to the recognised -˜how to teach' principles of the Making Every Lesson Count series. The result is an enthralling, challenging and, on occasions, thought-provoking book based on the key skills of challenge, explanation, modelling, practice, feedback and questioning. Readers will also gain from the reflection questions at the end of each chapter to promote self-analysis and confidence. 

Overall, this book is a great addition to the debate on extending the RE curriculum and I highly recommend it to RE teachers in all settings.
