The Interviews

The following films contain succinct interviews with people of faith from Cornwall. Each of the RE-searcher characters has asked two questions to five members of the Cornwall Faith Forum (http://dorkemmyn.org.uk/). This project, sponsored by Cornwall SACRE to mark Interfaith Week (https://www.interfaithweek.org/), provides teachers with video stimuli to use in the classroom as starting point or focus for a lesson. Furthermore, it provides schools using the RE-searchers approach an opportunity to see how each of the RE-searchers elicits different kinds of information from people of faith and provides them with a springboard for different forms of enquiry. For example activity ideas for each character to use in conjunction with the videos see:

 

P26 for Ask-it-all Ava activity ideas
P33 – 35 for Debate-it-all Derek activity ideas
P42 – 46 for Have-a-go Hugo activity ideas
P59 – 60 for See-the-story Story Suzie activity ideas
