Empathise
Reflect
React
 
 
‘Empathise’.
In RE we don’t just learn about the beliefs and practices of a faith, but we gain an appreciation of what it means to its followers and what those practices signify to believers. Empathising also allows us to explore the culture/ cultures surrounding faith.
 
Reflect’
Reflect can be interpreted in many ways, including reflecting on the teachings of the faith, the practices of its adherents, the impact of that faith on the wider world, our personal responses to the faith, and more besides. 
 
React’. Reacting can be on an intellectual level or an emotional level, and we can also help uncover personal feelings and prejudices.
