The Effective Teaching of Religious Education provides an accessible yet intellectually rigorous resource for all those involved in the teaching of RE in schools today.

Written with the needs of specialist and non-specialist teachers in mind, in both the primary and secondary sectors, it successfully integrates theory and practice, encouraging debate and reflection on a broad range of issues in what is often regarded as a complex and often controversial subject area.

The second edition has been written with the collaboration of a new co-author, Penny Thompson and has been thoroughly updated, revised and extended to include:

A new chapter on the place of Christianity in RE

New material on the purpose of RE and on the relationship of RE to other subjects

A new Appendix on tackling assessment and syllabus requirements

A new companion website at including an overview of the use of ICT in RE teaching, web links and practical resources for use in the classroom.
