VCE TEXTS AND TRADITIONS UNITS 1-2

Either Semester or Both

Texts and Traditions engages with some of the formative documents of three great religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It uses these – the Torah, Wisdom Literature, the Qur’an and St. John’s Gospel – to study issues of universal and current importance.  These texts were developed in response to issues of their time but now help us to confront such things as suffering, terrorism, inequality, and the possibility of hope in the face of negativity.  As a VCE year 11 subject it allows students to test themselves at a higher level.  Great emphasis is placed on the development of learning: note taking, textual analysis and comprehension, critical thinking and cooperative projects.
