Teaching AQA A Level Philosophy

Teaching AQA A Level Philosophy

As well as providing an overview of the syllabus content, including discussion of challenging philosophical topics, it will cover the distinct approach to philosophy of this specification, e.g. in contrast with understandings of philosophy in Religious Studies, and the implications this approach to philosophy has for teaching and marking.
