Reflecting on the Principles and Practice Paper in RERC What additional support materials are mentioned as essential in helping you implement this framework and in what ways will they support teaching and learning? In what ways can the Principles and Practice Paper inform your teaching of RERC to take it forward within a Curriculum for Excellence? What are the key features of assessment ? Why are the sections of the Principles and Practice Paper phrased as questions?
How are the experiences and outcomes structured in RERC ? There are 8 organisers: Mystery of God In the Image of God Revealed Truth of God Son of God Signs of God Word of God Hours of God Reign of God
Getting started: some questions for discussion In light of advice on RERC learning and teaching approaches and the outcomes and experiences framework: 1. Building on your current practice what are the implications for what and how you currently teach? 2. How will you ensure the needs of all learners are met? 3. Which experiences and outcomes within Religious Education and across other curricular areas could you link to provide a coherent experience for learners? 4. Who would you liaise with both within the school and the wider community? 5. How might you approach curriculum planning using the Experiences and Outcomes in your school/ department?
Getting started: reflecting on the RERC framework 1.In what ways can the RERC experiences and outcomes provide opportunities for children and young people to develop an understanding of how their learning will help them in their future lives? 2.Consider how you would deliver specific experiences and outcomes in your class or school? 3.How will you identify and share good practice –how could Glow assist with this? 4.What professional development is required to support your implementation of the RERC experiences and outcomes?
