Think Faith – Learning at Home
For Term 2, CEP is creating fun, engaging and free self-paced lessons every week for High School Students to do at home based on the approved Think Faith Curriculum. This term, students explore the Gospel of Mark from the New Testament. Students will consider the following questions: Who does Jesus think he is, How does Jesus use his power, Why do people misunderstand Jesus and If Jesus is powerful, why doesn’t he stop bad things happening? The full scope and sequence of this curriculum can be found here.
The self-paced lessons utilise a platform called near-pod. Please click on the link below to access the weekly lesson. All student comments and questions in the lesson will be viewed by a moderator, however no interaction will occur between students, or between students and CEP, on this platform.
How it works
A Think Faith subscription gives you access to all the Think Faith resources. Pricing is based on the number of students being taught. Multiple teachers working together in the one school can share the same subscription. Think Faith is available through calendar year subscription.
Think Faith is organised into units of work for students in stages 4 and 5 (years 7-10) of secondary school.
Each unit contains all the teaching resources necessary for providing engaging and challenging learning opportunities for students.
Think Faith is developed to help students learn at a deep level. Students are encouraged to ask questions, and participate in classroom and small group discussions and activities.
Worksheets in Think Faith help student engage by scaffolding and consolidating learning. They provide an opportunity for students to articulate their personal views and reflections on what they have learned.

“The provision of better resources and better quality content across our state schools, will mean uniformly better teaching of the gospel to our young people. Teachers still need to learn how to teach, to adapt and engage, but having a curriculum you can trust gets you at least halfway there.”
