Ryan, Maurice – Journal of Religious Education, 2022
The Jewish Passover seder meal is one of the central celebrations for Jews.

Kimanen, Anuleena – Journal of Religious Education, 2022

Fancourt, Nigel; Guilfoyle, Liam – Journal of Religious Education, 2022
The importance of developing students' argumentation skills is well established across the curriculum: students should grasp how claims are made and supported in different disciplines.

Stones, Alexis; Fraser-Pearce, Jo – Journal of Religious Education, 2022
This article draws on an empirical research project in which we explore the roles and understandings of knowledge in Religious Education (RE). Plural understandings of knowledge in schools (and society) lead us to concerns about the relationships between knowledge and social justice. We define epistemic literacy as the capability to recognise, and…

Henry, Seán – Journal of Religious Education, 2022
Tensions across religious and LGBTQ concerns have played out in education for some time. In this paper, I make efforts to respond productively to this context by theorising what it might mean for young people in religious schools to dissent from the heteronormativity of religion in religious education (RE). To do this, I survey perspectives across…
