  1. Exam Practice... Don’t let this be you...

  2. OBJECTIVE: To focus on the structure of (a) and (d) type questions and to use peer marking to improve your exam technique.

  3. OUTCOMES… Your GOALS for the end of this lesson are… Grades G-D You will be able to give no more than 2 reasons for your opinion when answering a (d) type question. • Grade C • You will be able to give 3 explained reasons for your opinion when answering a (d) type question. • Grade B • You will be able to give 4 well explained reasons for your opinion when answering a (d) type question. • Grade A-A* • You will be able to give 5- 6 well explained reasons for your opinion when answering a (b) type question.

  4. Starter… The BAD The GOOD and the Look at the following (a) question answers... REMEMBER these are when you give DEFINITIONS to KEY WORDS. You need to decide if the answer is: GOOD = Full correct definition = 2 MARKS (full marks) BAD = Incorrect definition = 0 MARKS INBETWEEN = Partially correct definition = 1 MARK

  5. The (a) questions and answers... What is adultery? Having an affair. INBETWEEN = 1 marks – correct = A sexual act between a married person and someone they are not married to. What is cohabitation? Staying with your marriage partner and only having sex with them BAD = 0 mark – correct = Living together and in a relationship without being married. What is promiscuity? Having sex with a number of partners without commitment. GOOD = 2 marks What is pre-marital sex? Sex before marriage. GOOD = 2 marks What is procreation? Making babies. INBETWEEN = 1 Mark – correct = Having sex in order to make a new life.

  6. The (a) questions These questions give you 2 marks just for knowing the key words and their meanings – EASY  This means you MUST learn ALL the key words for every unit as the (a) questions make up 10% of your exam.

  7. The (a) questions How are they marked? • Its SIMPLES... • These questions are for 2 marks – you get FULL marks for a correct definition . • If you give a definition that is PARTLY right you will get ONE mark.

  8. The (a) questions Now its YOUR turn... You now have 4 minutes to answer the following... Please write out the two words and what they mean. a. What is MARRIAGE? (2 marks) a. What is DIVORCE? (2 marks)

  9. Answers • MARRIAGE – the legal joining of a man and a woman • DIVORCE – the legal ending of a marriage

  10. How many babies were there? How many of the babies had blond hair? The pram was in two colours –what were they? How many children were wearing red shoes? Brain Gym Memory A key part of doing well on the exam is remembering key facts and beliefs. Look at the following picture carefully then answer the question using your memory. Why do it? The brain is a MUSCLE the more you exercise it the better it will perform – practising visual memory with help improve your overall memory.

  11. The (d) questions These questions ask you to give YOUR OPINION. • You must give 3 REASONS why you agree OR disagree. • You must give 3 REASONS why some people might disagree with YOUR opinion. You MUST include some religious beliefs/teachings in at least one of the sections to get fill marks. Remember to split up you arguments... one part must agree and the other must disagree.

  12. The (d) questions How are they marked? • Its SIMPLES... These type of questions are worth 6 marks. These questions are split into TWO parts – (i) & (ii)... Each part is marked out of 3 – you get ONE mark for each point you make.

  13. The (d) questions “All religious parents should make sure their children believe in God.”In your answer you should refer to at least one religion. Example: • Do you agree? Give reasons for your opinion. I disagree because I think everyone should make their own decisions when it comes to religion. It also goes against their basic human rights to have the freedom to choose their own religion. It is like brainwashing and would goes against the idea of free will. • (ii) Give reasons why some people may disagree with you. Some people may disagree with me because Christian parents want to raise their children as well as they can and teaching them about God makes their children morally good people. Christian parents also believe that it is their duty to raise their child to follow their religion and teach them about God. Also many religions people make promises during their wedding ceremonies to raise any children they have to follow their religion so it is important to do so. 1 mark given for ONE reason 2 marks given for ONE reason 3 marks given for ONE reason

  14. The (d) questions • Have a go at marking... • Look at the following answers and give them a mark out of 6. • Remember you must mark each section out of 3 then add this up to get a total out of 6!

  15. I agree because some Christians believe that sex is only for procreation (having a baby) and contraception stops a woman having one. Some people might disagree because some Christians think that sex is a gift from God to give pleasure to each other. • ‘’Christians should never use contraception.” In your answer you should refer to at least ONE religion. • Do you agree? (3 Marks) • Give reasons why some people may disagree with you. (3 Marks)

  16. I agree because Roman Catholics believe that sex is for procreation only and contraception stops that process happening. I also agree because the Bible says that human beings should reproduce and if Christians use contraception that won’t happen. Some people might disagree with me because Christianity teaches that love is important and sex enables a couple to show their love without getting pregnant. Another reason why people might disagree is that the Bible doesn’t say anywhere that contraception is wrong so Christians should be able to use it. • ‘Christians should never use contraception’ In you answer you should refer to at least ONE religion. • Do you agree? (3 Marks) • Give reasons why some people may disagree with you. (3 Marks)

  17. I agree because in the Bible it says that humans should “be fruitful and multiply”. This means having children and if Christians use contraception they are preventing children being born. I also agree because Roman Catholics don’t allow artificial contraception because it stops procreation taking place (making babies). They believe that the purpose of sex is to have children and contraception stops that. My final reason is that contraception can encourage people to be promiscuous (sleep around) and Christians believe this is wrong and that sex should only be done within marriage. Some people may disagree with me because they believe sex was created by God to give pleasure to a couple who loved each other. Using contraception lets them use that gift and not worry about getting pregnant. Contraception can also help protect a woman’s health because it stops sexually transmitted diseases. It is a loving thing to do to care for people like that and this is why some Christians like Protestants allow the use of contraception. A final reason is that the Bible doesn’t mention contraception at all; if Christians were not allowed to use it then wouldn’t the Bible say so? • ‘Christians should never use contraception’ In you answer you should refer to at least ONE religion. • Do you agree? (3 Marks) • Give reasons why some people may disagree with you. (3 Marks)

  18. Yes I do Because they are not me • ‘Christians should never use contraception’ In you answer you should refer to at least ONE religion. • Do you agree? (3 Marks) • Give reasons why some people may disagree with you. (3 Marks) This gets you NOTHING!

  19. Time for some exercise!

  20. Count the number of times the num­ber “6” appears below 1234467889974674657865876576576 3576573625432657346578436578342 2732188582735827456724687343828 7672878682768723682376783768267 2647648823178346432764876774653 7436574386581483627868653873465 This type of exercise has been used by the army to improve attention and concentration.
