    Unit 4 This unit focuses on the interaction over time of religious traditions and religious denominations and the societies of which they are a part. For a large part of human history religion has been drawn on as a truth narrative, offering a means for finding answers to the big questions of life. Religious traditions and religious denominations are in a dynamic process of engagement and negotiation with members individually and collectively, as well as with other key institutions in wider society associated with power, authority and credibility. Religious traditions and religious denominations are living institutions that interact with society and can likewise be influenced by society. They can stimulate and support society, acting as levers for change themselves and embracing or resisting forces for change within society. 4.1 Matt Fyfield - short videos for challenges.

    Unit 3 In this area of study students focus on the interplay between religion and significant life experiences of members of religious traditions and religious denominations. Students consider the relationship between different types of significant life experiences and religious beliefs generally. They then undertake a detailed study of one particular significant life experience of a member of one selected religious tradition or religious denomination. The significant life experience may be a single event at a particular time or occur over an extended period. It has to be an experience that informed, reinforced or changed the person’s faith in and understanding of beliefs and their engagement with the expression of those beliefs. Students investigate what happens to an individual’s adherence to and understanding of the relevant religious beliefs and related expressions in the other aspects as a result of a significant life experience.

    Unit 1 In this unit students explore the spiritual origins of religion and understand its role in the development of society, identifying the nature and purpose of religion over time. They investigate religion, including the totality of phenomena to which the term ‘religion’ refers, and acknowledge religion’s contribution to the development of human society. They also focus on the role of spiritualities, religious traditions and religious denominations in shaping personal and group identity over time. Students examine how individuals, groups and new ideas have affected and continue to affect spiritualities, religious traditions and religious denominations. The unit provides an opportunity for students to understand the often complex relationships that exist between individuals, groups, new ideas, truth narratives, spiritualities and religious traditions broadly and in the Australian society in which they live.
