But going by the marking schemes, it looks like you only get marks for very specific things, i.e. no marks are awarded for things that don't have real historical significance.

Could you give an example of say what does get marks and what doesn't?

For example, say if I was writing an answer to "A Factory Worker in Industrial Britain" and I wrote about this workers living conditions at home, would I get marks for that?


Yes you would, unless it specified in the question that you were to write about the worker's working conditions.

If, on the other hand, you veered off into a tale of how the factory owner made his fortune, then you wouldn't.

e.g.
My name is Tom, last year I moved from the country to the town as we were not needed to work the harvest becasue of the new machines.

(1 SRS - underlined) - This would get marks.

My name is Tom, my wife is Mary, I work in a factory. We have four kids and life is very hard.

This would not get any marks as it is.
It is too waffly.

The guideline is to write between a page and a page and a half. This is a page exactly.


Guideline or not, it is marked according to the SRSs in it.
Only 8 SRSs are needed for a full mark answer.

I have seen answers 12 lines long that got full marks.

Thanks for the religion, any more?


Religious Morality


  • Morality: The basis on which a person makes moral choices, i.e. between right and wrong, good and bad
  • Moral person: A person who knows the difference between right and wrong and chooses right
  • Immoral person: Someone who knows the difference between right and wrong and does wrong


Choice=Action=Consequences -> negative and positive -> affects relationships

  • Influence: something that affects a person's behaviour/decisions
  • Society: connection that exists between people when they share an outlook and way of life
  • (Lots about influences in other post i.e. family, friends/peers, religion, state, school).

Moral Vision
  • A moral vision is based on the common good
  • A religious moral vision (RMV) is based on religious beliefs
  • Religious faith underlies the laws and moral code of faith community
  • Having a RMV is about knowing and doing what God wants

Religious Moral Vision: this is awareness of what is right and wrong, as revealed by the sacred texts or founder of a community of faith

Moral Vision of Christianity
  • God made us with the freedom to choose between good and bad
  • At the heart of Christian morality is love: Jesus said -> 'Love one another as I have loved you'.
  • Christian moral vision involves forgiveness
  • RMV should be guided by sacred scripture (10 Commandments)

A moral code is based on a moral vision

The 10 Commandments
  • The basis of the moral code that Jesus grew up with
  • They gave guidance in how people should live in a right relationship with each other and with God

Examples:
  • You shall not steal
  • You shall not kill
  • You shall not take the name of the lord your God in vain
  • I am the Lord your God: You shall not have strange gods before me
  • etc.


Stages of Moral Growth

1.Moral Immaturity
  • We are very young and only do the right thing if we benefit from it
  • Self-centred and selfish
  • Decisions are not based on what is right or wrong


2.Moral Steps
  • Decisions are made to avoid punishment or out of fear of punishment


3.Moral Sheep
  • We need peer approval and decisions are based on wanting to be liked by others
  • We become aware of the positive and negative consequences of our actions
  • Most Teenagers


4.Moral Society
  • Influenced by society and promoting behaviour for the common good of all

5.Moral Maturity
  • When a person upholds the values of justice, peace, respect, truth, love and forgiveness
  • People at this stage have an informed moral vision which guides their decisions


  • Conscience: the ability to judge the best thing to do when free to choose


Decision-Making
  • Morally mature people use the D.E.C.I.D.E. process;


  • D-> Define the facts and info
  • E-> Listen to the voice of experience
  • C-> List all possible consequences
  • I-> Listen to your inner self (conscience, faith, etc)
  • D-> Decide the best possible outcome and go through with action
  • E-> Evaluate and reflect on your decision and learn from experience!


Euthanasia as a conflict between the State and Religion

  • Euthanasia means good death. It refers to the practice of ending a life in a painless manner.
  • Can be accomplished in an Oral, intravenous (known as IV), or intramuscular administration of drugs.
  • assisted-suicide is the process by which an individual who is incapable is provided with the means to die from suicide.
  • Euthanasia includes acts which are performed by people other than the patient


Arguments for:
  • autonomy: every person has the right to make personal and private decisions about their own lives
  • Euthanasia: allows patients to die with dignity
  • Utility: allows greatest good for the greatest number of people because:
  • the patients suffering is removed
  • family can grieve properly
  • medical staff can avoid grief and stress
  • very high costs of terminal care for patient are removed
  • quality over quantity: human life is sacred and it should not be degraded by reducing the quality of life for extending quantity of life.


Arguments against:
  • Euthanasia wouldn't be only for people who are terminally ill
  • it will become a means of health care cost containment
  • it will become non-voluntary
  • it is a rejection of the importance and value of human life

  • -The Church says...

  • the Christian teaching condemns euthanasia as a "crime against life". The teaching of the Christian Church on euthanasia rests on several core principles including the sanctity of human life, the dignity of the human person.


  • -The State says...
  • euthanasia is illegal in Ireland: this shows the Church's power over law


Social Justice
  • Justice: fairness and respect which leads to good relationships

-right relationships with other people no matter who they are
-to be denied one's human rights is to be denied justice

  • We live in an unjust world
  • Our world is divided by enormous wealth on the one hand and great poverty on the other


Why would a Christian work for justice?
  • Christians believe that it is their religious duty to work for social justice. They would work for social justice to live as Jesus wanted
  • This means helping to eradicate poverty and the unfair distribution of global wealth
  • Justice is at the heart of Jesus' message, "Love God with all your heart ... and love your neighbours as yourself."
  • When faced with the moral issue of social justice, Christians should ask themselves, "if I do this will I be showing that I love God/my neighbour?"

Exam question:
Describe the work for justice being done by members of a world religion.
  • Who works for justice?

Trocaire in Christianity

  • It is a church organisation part of the Catholic Church
  • Works for justice and peace in the world and it wants to make everyone aware of poverty
  • It was set up in 1973
  • Trocaire = Compassion


  • Their Inspiring Vision: It is inspired by Scripture and Gospel values
  • Its vision for the future is for:
  • a just world - equality
  • people's dignity to be protected
  • human rights to be respected


Sin and forgiveness

  • sin: an offence against God. Turning away from a relationship with God and others
  • judgement: a decision about someone or something, usually arrived after careful consideration
  • forgiveness: the act of pardoning, excusing or making allowances for an offence


The Sacrament of Reconciliation
  • offers the possibility of restoring broken relationships


4 elements
  • Contrition - must be very sorry for sinning
  • Confession - must confess their sins
  • Absolution - receives forgiveness
  • Satisfaction - priest gives person an act of penance


Parable of the Lost Sheep
What does this parable reveal about sin and forgiveness?
The meaning of this parable is that if one person loses their faith in God (sins), He will always watch over you and when you regain your faith (confess sins), He will welcome you back.
  • God = shepherd
  • 99 sheep = non-sinners
  • Lost sheep = sinner

Glencree Centre for Reconciliation

  • The Ecumenical Movement - purely Christian movement to promote unity between all Christian Churches.


Stewardship and morality

  • State Law and Morality
  • Pluralism: a state of society where the views of people of all traditions are tolerated
  • Religious fundamentalism: literal take on scriptures and teachings. Rejects attempts to update or modernise the way in which Community belief is expressed



That's all I've got

Important Romeo and Juliet quotes?

Important Romeo and Juliet quotes?


Learn about 10 quotes per character if you want to be prepared - and from dramatic scenes. For example;

"O happy dagger! this is thy sheath; there rust, and let me die." - Juliet says this when she sees Romeo dead. She is quick to act when she sees the dagger. Admired because of courage. Willing to endure the pain.


Mostly learn the quotes that seem to stick out to you. Another example:

"I'll look to like, if looking liking move" - Juliet is obedient to her mother. She does not promise to marry Paris but agrees to try to get to know him for love.
