Stories from Buddhist Traditions
Stories from Buddhist Traditions is a resource for use by school teachers that has been developed as part of Dr Naomi Appleton and Dr Alison Jack’s project Approaching Religion Through Story at the University of Edinburgh School of Divinity.
Structured to meet Education Scotland’s Curriculum for Excellence standard for Religious Moral Education (RME), the resource is divided according to the three structuring principles of the experiences and outcomes for RME in Scotland: Beliefs, Values and Issues, and Practices and Traditions. Keywords are also provided to indicate the particular relevance of the story.
The resource contains six stories in PDF format, sorted by the principles stated above, and an introduction to Jakatas. The ‘What’s It Tree’ and the ‘Prince Vessantara’ stories both have accompanying PowerPoint Presentations for illustrative purposes.
