The Seeking Religion: The Buddhist Experience by Mel Thompson


The Seeking Religion: The Buddhist Experience by Mel Thompson

A balanced, factual and culturally sensitive examination of Buddhism for Key Stage 3 Religious Studies. The Seeking Religion series has titles for each of the main world religions. It is a proven reliable and accessible resource for Key Stage 3 Religious Education. Each title has concise easy-to-understand narrative and a wide range of questions and activities to stimulate discussions in order to learn from and about religion. The Buddhist Experience helps pupils to: - gain an understanding about Buddhism: how it originated, its key beliefs and practices and its responses to different issues - learn from Buddhism, and reflect on their own beliefs and values.


These Key Stage 3 books offer information and activities about the six major world religions. The foundation edition for lower-ability pupils has been editied by a special needs consultant: the text is simpler and the print size is larger, reflecting the lower reading age of the foundation students. Questions in each section allow students to consolidate their learning. The books are beautifully produced with high quality photographs. Information is accurate and the books are written to conform to the QCA model syllabuses, so RE teachers will find them very useful. J Erricher
