About JSS3 Christian Religious Studies Scheme of Work

Christian Religious Studies (CRS) is a subject taught in Junior secondary schools where students learn about Christianity. It is the study of what Christians believe, how they worship, and how Christianity has affected society. It teaches several Bible stories, Christian traditions, and what is right and wrong according to Christian teachings. 

 

The main aim of teaching CRS in Junior secondary schools is to help students understand the most important beliefs of Christianity and how they relate to different parts of life.

 

Christian Religious Studies is taught in Junior Secondary schools to give students a full understanding of Christianity as a religion, including its cultural, historical, and social aspects. It also teaches students to value tolerance, respect, and empathy for people from different religious backgrounds.

Assessment Guide

The crowning event for Jss3  and the Junior Secondary school as a whole is the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) which is taken mid-third term. The assessment methods for Christian Religious studies include written examinations, which may consist of multiple-choice questions, short-answer questions, and essay-type questions. These exams are conducted in a controlled environment to ensure fairness and integrity.

Furthermore, continuous assessment, which involves periodic tests, assignments, and projects conducted throughout the academic session, also contributes to the overall BECE assessment. This allows for an all-around evaluation of students’ performance and progress over time.
