I think lots of you will be interested in reading the debates on http://www.shouldwe.org which is a really clever way to show trending debates about social issues, government, the environment, education, and foreign affairs.
In other words if you want to keep up-to-date on issues which are likely to require opinions (yours and other people’s) on the Religious Studies course – this is the website for you! Below are a few examples of ShouldWe debates which fit into a RS course:
Unit 8 Section 3 http://www.shouldwe.org/issues/90 Should we withdraw UK forces from Afghanistan in 2014?
Unit 1 Section 2 http://www.shouldwe.org/issues/59 Should we specifically criminalise abortion on the basis of gender?
Unit 8 Section 2 http://www.shouldwe.org/issues/108 Should we ‘frack’ for shale gas?
