ADAPTING THE COURSE

The Other 3Rs was written primarily for use in UK schools, and some of the concepts and examples used will need to be adapted for use by teachers in other countries, cultures and religious traditions. The authors and publishers give full permission for this customisation, so long as the core structure is respected.

WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY

"It will be an invaluable aid for teachers for whom very little good material on moral values and related issues is currently available."
(Stuart Sexton, Director, Independent Primary and Secondary Education Trust)

"I found The Other 3Rs a stimulating resource for introducing and initiating discussion of moral questions. Recent high profile news stories have emphasised even more the need for material of this kind for religious studies, PSE, or more generally in tutor groups."
(Brian Miller, former religious studies and economics teacher, Bristol)
