How to Structure a 'D' Question for GCSE (Religious Studies)?Watch this thread
I am struggling on structuring GCSE Religious D Question and would someone just help me by giving me a structure plan of the paragraphs?
K - knowledge. So basically the point
I-impact. How this point impacts people’s lives / influences them .
S-source of wisdom. Quotes
S-specialist language. And key word eg. Bible or encyclical
J-judgement why this is a sting or weak argument. DO NOT say why YOUR paragraph is weak / strong just say why people would believe the point
You can do these in any order but leave the judgement till last
Argue - give a reason/make your point
Develop - explain the argument (with relevance to the question)
Defend - use a source of wisdom/explain why this is a strong argument
Evaluate - explain weakness/issues with the argument and/or a contrasting view of the reason
Reason - respond to this weakness (e.g. flawed/invalid/weak)
Summary - give a brief concluding/summarising statement about the argument
Do the same for the opposing opinion too ofc.
Conclude - brief summary of points made
Add your opinion - explain which argument you agree/disagree with and why
Tie it all together - end with a strong statement that links back to the question.
Hope this helped
Discuss the statement showing that you have considered more
than one point of view. AO2 
(You must refer to religion and belief in your answer.)--This means a non religious point is not needed ,If you do it will state it in the question.
My theisis .....that you must not only look at the conscience but scripture,traditionand magisterium
do PEEIL x3 2 for against and 1 for/ or 2 for and 1 against (depending how many quotes you have for each )
Point-Catholics would agree with me because they believes you must look at Jesus Christ as he is the greatest role model
Evidence-sermon on the mount /SOM quotes
Explain -Beatitudes tell us how to enter heaven not just to live on earth unlike the commandments which tell us to be good people
Impact-Use the beatitudes to examine conscience not just commandments when doing confession for Catholics .
L ink-Is the point a Strong/Weak argue in your opinion and reasoning ....Strong argument -Jesus said'I am the way the truth and the life ' Jesus is the greatest role model as he is the hypostasic union Jesus does not make mistakes but as humans we do so the conscience is not always the best use of judgement .

Planning before hand for the D questions help you know what to write aswell as using quotes that can be used for multiple D questions e.g crusifixion links to suffering ,role models and obedience ,Life after death
