As part of our new unit of work in Year 10 Religion my students were given the task of creating a short video linking Christ, the ‘asylum seeker’ issue and politics. The boys were only given a short period of time to produce the clip. The results were quite interesting.
Year 10 students are notoriously difficult to engage when it comes to RE. It is important to create tasks that are authentic if you are going to get some ‘buy in’ from the students. Our aim was to try and create a video that would attract attention in the run up to the election.
