Investigating Worldviews

What is a worldview? How does your religious or non-religious worldview affect how you live your life? The second volume in the Big Questions Big Answers series provides a selection of well-resourced strategies for teaching about worldviews, focusing on celebration, dress and inspiring young people. Multi-disciplinary RE is explored with our religious studies and sociology investigators.

For younger pupils we use persona dolls to look at the diverse celebrations of Diwali for Hindus and Eid-ul-Fitr for Muslims; we also consider how different religious and non-religious worldviews believe we should treat the environment.

For older pupils there is a focus on three young inspiring figures: Greta Thunberg, Malala Yousafzai and Marcus Rashford. What is it about their worldviews that has led them to act in the ways they have?

Our multi-disciplinary units look at the many ways that Christmas is celebrated and the diverse group who mark this celebration. They also investigate what influences the way Christians, Sikhs, Muslims and non-religious people might choose to dress, with an exploration of outside influence and personal choice.
