The above book by Dermot Lane analyses the changing culture of modern Ireland in which Religious Education must take place. The first change that Lane discusses is the concept of modern society where the emphasis is on the individual as an autonomous and self-sufficient person. This in turn he writes has impacted on how religion is practiced.

Faith he says has become privatised and removed from the domain of public discourse. He continues by reflecting briefly on the scandal within the Irish Church that came to light in the s that we are all too aware of that have done serious damage to the Catholic Church.

This scandal within the Church became an obstacle with students in the classroom. From personal experience teenagers are looking for an answer to such a difficult and huge scandal within the Catholic Church. It has called many young people to question their faith and the leaders of their faith community.

As a religious educator searching for the right answer proved difficult and simply dismissing the questions asked by students is not the correct response. It allowed me to use scripture, the story of Judas betraying Jesus to explain to the students about the recent scandals within the Church.

It gives students a chance to reflect on the current situation in the Church from a faith perspective. Judas, chosen by Jesus betrayed him. We are confronted by the same scandalous reality today. We can focus on those who have betrayed the Lord, those who abused rather than loved the people whom they were called to serve. Or we can focus, as did the early Church, on those who have remained faithful, those priests who are still offering their lives to serve Christ and you out of love.

But we the Church must keep the terrible scandal that we are witnessing in its true and full perspective. During my studies and teaching practise, many of the mission statements that I have read advocate a holistic approach.

That is to say that the development of the individual is central in education and this involves providing pastoral care and an appropriate and balanced curriculum and being aware of the whole person body, mind and spirit. At the same time it is important to be conscious that the school is also a living community. Lane proceeds by discussing the fact that another changing face of religion is the effect that violent acts have had on how religion is perceived.

As a result of migration, many countries worldwide are now accommodating people from many different cultures. While countries like United States and Great Britain have been multi- cultural for many generations now, Ireland has only become multi- cultural in the last twenty years or so. As a teacher it is very evident in the classroom that students can come from many different backgrounds and cultures. Even within the native Irish student community there can be elements of cultural differences.

This aspect of multiculturalism is challenging for the teacher and she needs to be creative, knowledgeable as well as flexible in the classroom. It is a challenging area for the religious educator as culture is not always easy to define. Also during my own years as both a second level and third level student learning about other faiths and religions made me consider my own religious beliefs on a deeper level, but more importantly I now have more respect for others values and their beliefs.

In conclusion, Lane presents a structured and thought provoking chapter that gives the religious educator an outlook into the reality of religious education in our current climate.

Our society is changing and our subject content must change with it. As a faith community we are constantly questioning and changing our beliefs. In a economic driven world education has drifted towards preparing young adults for the work place yet as Lane highlights we need to remain focused on a holistic approach to education. He reminds people how religion as a subject, although quite often moved aside and labelled as a subject of no value, can contribute to this holistic education of young people today.

In a world of terrorism, in a community with no religious dialogue where religion is associated with violence religious educators must move forward to promote inter religious dialogue and foster a new awareness and understanding for students own faiths and others in the world around them.

I will outline what I think are three of the biggest challenges of teaching Religious Education. There are, of course, many challenges to being a teacher that are not specifically related to the subject, and I will try to avoid these as much as possible as they are not unique. I am also aware that some of the challenges I say are challenges of being an RE teacher can also be challenges in other subjects. This ranges from the superficial to the super-important. Having just moved half-way around the globe, I am encountering lots of new people. I find that first impressions are often coloured by whether they get round to asking what I do for a living.

Challenges of teaching and learning religious and moral education in junior secondary schools in the Shama Ahanta east metropolis. Dzikunu, Francis Kofi. The study was a descriptive survey aimed at finding out the challenges facing teachers of RME in the junior secondary schools.

The aim of this study is to investigate the challenges facing the effective teaching and learning of religious education in contemporary secondary schools in Anambra State with reference to Onitsha urban. It is believed that generally education in Nigeria has lost its salt. The standard seems to have fallen and continues to fall. Besides, students in secondary schools are behaving as if they have no focus. Morality seems to have taken flight in schools, such that students commit all sorts of crimes without qualms, and these students are looked upon as leaders of tomorrow.
