Design Technology - Bloom's Taxonomy Effective Questioning Techniques

Design Technology - Bloom's Taxonomy Effective Questioning Techniques

Here is a resource that you can use as display and as questioning techniques based on Blooms Taxonomy. There are 6 wall posters to go alongside effective questioning techniques that you can use in your classroom. As teachers and as people part of the world, we ask questions to our learners and people everyday. Not all questions are on the same level. Some questions are easy to answer where other questions may require a great deal of thinking. These can be used to develop and enhance student understanding and thinking in the class. Bloom (1956) has provided us with his taxonomy to assist us to compose questions on different levels of thinking. This taxonomy ranges from lower to higher levels of cognitive thinking. These levels are (I will shortly provide more detail of each level): (1) Knowledge (2) Comprehension (3) Application (4) Analysis (5) Synthesis (6) Evaluation Including information on… • Tips for effective questioning • Planning for questioning • Asking open questions • Using questioning to develop collaborative work • Alternatives to questions - Using Bloom’s taxonomy to analyse design and technology questions • Effective tactics for questioning

AQA Design and Technology mock (new specification 2017) practice exam full paper sections A, B and C

AQA Design and Technology mock (new specification 2017) practice exam full paper sections A, B and C

Research suggests that one of the best ways for students to revise for an exam is to engage in past paper practice, the more the better (Roediger et al., 2005). However, with the release of new specifications for exams comes the problem that past papers just don't exist, therefore giving students the opportunity to practice the exam and build confidence going into the exam is limited. This full practice exam paper is designed to cover the content from the core technical principles, the specialist technical principles and the designing and making principles of the AQA GCSE Design and Technology new specification and is out of 100 marks. This significant resource will give students practice in answering questions in exactly the same format that they will face in their real exam. Alternatively, this resource can be used as a mock exam. The exam is split into 3 sections, A, B and C with a markscheme for each. This resource includes a cover sheet in the same style as the AQA exam adding authenticity to the student experience. The author of this resource is a TES recommended author, an IB Senior Examiner and has been published by Harper Collins (CIS Design and Technology Student book and Teacher guide)
