Aims of the session

  • What?
  • How?

4
Why Spiritual Development?
  • Concern with this aspect of pupil development has
    a long history and can be seen embedded in recent
    government legislation
  • Aim 2 of the National Curriculum
  • The School curriculum should aim to promote
    pupils spiritual ,moral, social, and cultural
    development and prepare all pupils for the
    opportunities, responsibilities and experiences
    of life

5
Why Spiritual Development ?
  • Pupil motivation - Pupils will want to do their
    best if they believe they matter to their school
    as unique individuals capable of growing in
    spirit, making responsible moral decisions and
    enjoying the fruits of human creativity.
    Experiences and relationships throughout the
    school must convince them of their value as
    individuals
  • Teacher motivation -No one can make others feel
    valued unless they feel valued themselves. A
    prime motivator for adults is a belief that what
    they are doing matters e.g. teaching to help
    pupils fulfil their potential as human beings
    rather than to help them pass exams.

6
Spiritual development and Personalised learning
  • the heart of personalized learning is the
    systematic and
  • explicit development of learning skills and
    strategies across
  • the curriculum. The aim is to enable pupils to
    understand
  • themselves better as learners and so take greater
    control
  • of and responsibility for their learning,
    transferring and
  • applying a widening repertoire of learning
    approaches in
  • different subjects and contexts.

This haunting image shows Joseline Ingabire, a 38
year old Tutsi woman, embracing her daughter
Leah. In the background is Hossiana, her other
daughter. Leah was born as a result of her being
raped by Hutu militia during the Rwandan Civil
War in 1994. She says that she still finds it
impossible to love Leah.
"I am beginning to appreciate that this other one
(Leah) is innocent but even when I get clothes
for them, I give priority to the older one."
Which religious beliefs and practices could
Joseline gain hope from? What ethical issues are
raised by this image?
I love my first daughter because I gave birth
to her as a result of love."
"one cabinet minister said she was personally in
favour of getting rid of all Tutsi without the
Tutsi, she told ministers, all of Rwanda's
problems would be over.

    recall, Replication
  • Deep learning is Reflection, Knowledge and
    Understanding
