Grade 9 Religious Studies

This course is designed to enrich students’ interest and ultimately make a stand on modern day issues facing society as a whole relating to life, science and ethics in relation to their religion. Topic areas include understanding truth as presented in varied ways, scientific development like, but not limited to, In Vitro Fertilization, cloning, genetic engineering, abortion, euthanasia and capital punishment. A look at the different religious response to these issues will also be covered.

This course’s intention is not to resolve those issues but to make available to students enough information to allow them to form an educated personal opinion about the issues.
