Synopses & Reviews
The place of religious education in the elementary curriculum is an ambiguous one for many teachers. Using a mixture of theory and practical ideas, this book will help all elementary teachers, whether specialists or not, to deliver effective RE. Terence Copley clarifies the legal framework for the subject, discusses problem areas like the withdrawal of children from the subject, and examines key principles and concepts involved in teaching the main areas of religious education. He also looks at practical issues of classroom organization and at how RE can be integrated topic work but should also be a subject in its own right.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -98) and index.
