Education matters!

OUAMEAS is currently collaborating with Sunningdale’s Charters School RS (religious studies) teacher Rose Magill on a pilot project intended to encourage and promote an interest in the study of anthropology, religion and culture in schools. RS is the only school-taught subject that does not have a National Curriculum, which makes this a rich and exciting qualification to teach. At A-level, it is also recognised by Russell Group Universities as 'an advanced level subject which provides suitable preparation for entry to university generally': essential if the school is to successfully support applications to these universities, especially Oxford. RS is recognised on Cambridge University’s list of generally suitable A-levels.

 

Students of Year 9 are exploring the Gypsy phenomena with Dr Carr as a part of their work on Interfaith Dialogue, to further their understanding of the beliefs and ways of life of others.

 

The title of the series is Where are Gypsies from? Ottoman, Orient, Occident, or Accident? (Abstract here)

If you are interested in obtaining teaching materials that might be useful in presenting this theme to schools, or would like to know more about how you can introduce topics of concern to anthropology to your students, please get in touch via alumni@anthro.ox.ac.uk addressing your request as: teaching materials.
