I have just added a page (see link above) to help you with your National 4 and 5 added value assignments.  This includes a booklet detailing exactly what you need to do to get an A in the National 5 Assignment as well as an exemplar report to help you to see what one should look like. I have also included a copy of your National 4 assignment along with the success criteria to help you to self assess your work.

Also, I have included on this page a selection of links to different sources on potential assignment topics.  These should help you in the research stages of your assignment to gather a variety of sources.

In order to gain a National 4 award, you must meet every outcome from the National 4 assignment in addition to your unit assessments for each topic.  You will submit a draft to be marked before the final National 4 assignment is to be completed within 4 hours in class time under assessment conditions.

For National 5, your report will make up 25% of your final grade (between A-D) and is worth 20 marks overall.  You will complete drafts of this at home and in class and will be expected to produce this assignment under timed exam conditions (1 hour) in S4.  This is then sent away to SQA for marking.

For both of these assignments you will be allowed one single side of A4 as a resource sheet.  These will be sent away to the SQA along with your work.

Site update

See the new tabs above.   Digital copies of revision booklets for Higher and Intermediate 2 have been made available.

Also, I have set up a homework page so that you can manage your deadlines.  This should help you to take ownership of your own learning.  Answers can be emailed to me if this is easier.

Coming soon:

Links to a youtube account with revision video clips and more sample answers in the Higher sample answer section.


Higher Homework for Wed 13/2/13

1. Describe the Euthphyro dilemma.4KY

2.  What are the sources of religious morality?4KU

Use the powerpoints to help you (marking schemes are on them).  Remember, religious morality is from things like scripture, teachings of the Church, experience etc.  You need to say why/how these affect a person morally. 

Also, the Euthyphro dilemma is about the source of morality.  Who decides what is right and wrong.



Welcome to my blog.  This has been designed to provide resources to help you to get the best grade you can in your RMPS course this year.
