  1. Should France Be Allowed To Ban The Hijab?

    Getting taught is a basic human right and also religious beliefs should be respected during a child’s education. With all factors considered I agree with this reason totally. I think that everyone should have equal rights and someone’s belief shouldn’t be a reason to stop their education. France banning the hijab is also unfair as children from Islamic families have got used to their families wearing hijabs and they will think that it is bad as it is illegal. Also I think that wearing a hijab doesn’t harm anyone but it makes the person wearing the hijab feel better for giving up something to their beliefs and religion.

Religious Studies involves more than just study the world's great religions. In studying the subject you may end up covering how spirituality underpins our culture, how belief systems inform how we treat each other, animal life and the world around us, and the role religion plays in societies around the globe. Youll pick up some valuable skills along the way too: analytical thinking and critical judgement, the ability to work with others, skills of expression and discussion, and ways in which you can negotiate and resolve argument.

You will cover the major global religions (and specialising in one or two), ethics, crime and punishment, personal relationships and the family and the response of societies to issues like poverty in different parts of the world. You'll need to be able to clearly discuss relevantpoints in your assignments and Marked by Teachers have a comprehensive range of assessed RS essays, which you can access to build the skills you need.

  • To what extent was American society racist in the 1920s?

    "To conclude, I believe that American society was very racist in the 1920s. This started off with the Jim Crow Laws in the southern states and then the 'resurrection' of the Ku Klux Klan. The treatment towards the Black American degraded at a very fast rate and so they decided to move to the northern states where there was a less concentration of them. However, the Americans there were racist as well and the police and courts didn't do anything about it as they too were racist. Even though treatment towards Blacks slightly improved due to organisations such as the UNIA, overall, they were seen as 'an inferior race' and it would be a while until treatment towards Blacks greatly improved.

  • Compare and Contrast the Following Poems: Telephone Conversation by Wole Soyinka, In-a Brixtan Markit by James Berry, On the Subway by Sharon Olds and On an Afternoon Train from Purley to Victoria by James Berry.

    "Both "On the Subway" and "Telephone Conversation" are about people hastily jumping to conclusions, rather than thinking for themselves. The existence of racism itself has to do with the unfairness off people, who do not think off others and the consequences of their words. All the poems show what we should think before we make remarks or are unjust to someone just because of their colour. 1 1 Kritank Gupta"

  • Having read Free Dinners' from Come to Mecca analyse Farrukh Dhondy's prsentation of the character of Lorraine.

    "Conclusions- it is joining together to give us positive and negative and very sad ending by watching Lorraine suffering as a prostitute. This story written to give us some knowledged about some people suffers from joining two different cultures. Culture, which is joined by love without thinking about the future. The story is written to spread the message that prejudice is an act that often misleads people to wrong ways and sometime waste thier talent and their life. Racism often leads to many complications and perilous cases to violence and riots and divides the communities in half. That's what Farrukh Dhondy tries to explain and spread this message to the world that two communities only come together when racism die and until we understand each other's communities properly and try to increase the peace."
