Course details

Not available to students who have successfully completed EDUC 3035 Religion in Education A.

This course explores the role and purpose of Catholic schools in the education of children and young people within the contemporary Australian situation. This will involve exploring the role of Catholic schools as agents of the Church in a pluralistic society, examining the range of positions regarding the purpose of religious education in Catholic schools, being aware of the history of religious education approaches in Australian Catholic schools, and reflecting on the implications of human and religious development of children and adolescents for religious education. The key focus of this course will be to examine and utilise the foundational elements of curriculum design in Religious Education Learning Area for the South Australian context. After the examination of various models of Religious Education (RE), an important element of this course is for students to articulate their own approach to RE and to accordingly design a unit of work utilising the Religious Education Framework for SA Catholic Schools and contemporary teaching and learning strategies and resources that will have been introduced to students in the course. The course will also explore various positions regarding assessment and reporting in RE, and how to teach Scripture in RE.
