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 religious education. Terence Copley clarifies the legal framework, 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 religious education can be integrated into topic work but should also remain a subject in its own right.
