To start a group project about weddings. Think about the research that you completed about weddings last lesson – what do you now know about weddings in Christianity, Judaism & Islam? In Muslim countries Muslim marriages are often arranged – what are the positive & negative points of arranged marriages that you found out for your homework? You are communicating & problem solving…
You are communicating… You are going to begin a project today all about weddings. To prepare for this task we need to think about wedding vows – what do you know about Christian wedding vows (these are the vows that you would hear at most church weddings)? The traditional Christian wedding vows are something like these: ‘I (your name), take you (the person you’re marrying’s name), to be my (wife/husband) to have & to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness & health, to love & to cherish; form this day forward until death do us part.’ Do people have to use these vows? Let’s look at some people who wrote their own wedding vows… 1. Jade Goody’s wedding vows 2. Dawn & Pete’s wedding renewal vows (from Gavin & Stacey) Where did these two ceremonies take place? What do you think should be included in wedding vows or do you think people should stick to the traditional vows?
You need to work in pairs – or groups of 3 at the most! Your task… You have 2 lessons (today is the first of those 2 lessons) to write your own wedding vows. You need to write a set for the bride & a set for the groom. You need to produce an illustrated copy of these vows. Remember that the word ‘vow’ just means ‘promise’. Think back to the wedding vows we’ve watched, you can write… Serious vows Emotional vows Funny vows Realistic vows Take your inspiration from songs or a poem Write vows for a celebrity couple…etc You have today’s lesson to write a draft copy of your vows. Then, you will have next lesson to produce the display copy of your vows. Who can tell us what we are doing? You are communicating, working with others & problem solving…
By the end of this lesson you should have… Designed your marriage vows for the bride & the groom. Have you completed the things that you should have done? Discuss as a pair… What do you need to get done for your homework to ensure that you can start making your display copy of your marriage vows next lesson?
