Grant Awarded 2019-2020 £4,500

Tim led a local group of teachers in a project entitled Teacher-led Research into argument and use of evidence in Religious Studies GCSE. The group drew upon research and expertise and their own classroom experience to explore the use of argument in evaluative essays in Religious Studies GCSE, particularly at the highest standard, level 4, where the exam-board criteria specify competence in the ability to recognise ‘strength of argument’ and use ‘logical chains of reasoning’ effectively. They developed a series of resources, along with a research of the month feature for RE:ONLINE which can be accessed here.
