This day will focus on the contemporary pedagogies, learning design principles and the theology which has shaped the redesign of Crossways.   We will explore the features of high-quality teaching and learning in Religious Education and discover how Visible Thinking strategies can encourage students to deepen their understandings in RE. 

The structure, features, terminology and purpose of the redesigned Crossways curriculum will be unpacked when we engage with new RE curriculum materials and we will look at how 'Enduring Understandings' can add depth to students' skills in questioning, interpreting, making meaning and dialogue in Religious Education.
