Five key ideas, CB 3, CL 1 & 3, CW 1 & 3, are woven into this unit which challenges students with the questions:
- What sort of a person do I want to be?
- What kind of world do I want to live in?
- How can I make an impact on the world I live in?
This unit has been written to fulfil the requirements of the CSCF as well as the requirements of the QSA Religion & Ethics SAS. The unit begins with an overview of models for ethical decision making before investigating two major ethical issues: globalisation & violence/conflict. The essential questions form the core of the unit, whereby students continue to make links between what they value and do and what the world is like. Alongside these investigations students investigate an issue of human rights violation, looking at what can be done to respond.
