How will they ensure they are not going to unintentionally offend someone, how will they deal with their product at the end of it’s life, how will they know how much to sell a product for to ensure it is price fairly but they still get a profit? This resources looks at the key issues in design broken down into 3 lessons - moral and cultural issues, social and economic issues, environmental and sustainable issues.

Exam survival Kit list

Exam survival Kit list

I used these with my yr 11s before they sat their exams. I collected together the objects on the list and put them into A5 plastic wallets. A bit of fun really, but the students loved them and they could be easily adapted if needed. Not a completely original idea, but I’ve created these list myself. You can buy kits that are completed with the items already gathered. However, the ones i could find were not great and quite pricey. I also thought it was nice to be able to personalise them if you wanted to. The picture is of one of the kits put together, although you can quite see all the items.

Differentiated manufacture sequence plan self evaluation task year 7

Here are 2 versions of self assessment tasks I used for my students in Resistant Materials to encourage them to reflect on what they had done and what they needed to do. The success criteria for the lesson you create can easily allow for more or less challenge. There is also some Welsh in the document in case you are in Wales!

Yr7 First PD Practical Lesson

Yr7 First PD Practical Lesson

This is a great single lesson starter that introduces Yr7 to some of the tools and equipment in the workshop. They each have to carry out a series of tasks using the pillar drill, fretsaw, disc / belt sander and hand tools after watching a teacher demonstration. This is their first hands on session which some are not phased by at all whilst others are very wary initially, but are fine by the end of the lesson. It is a great lesson for breaking down the ice with practical work. I have also used it as a form of baseline testing.

KS3 / 4 2D Design Memphis Inspired Clocks

KS3 / 4 2D Design Memphis Inspired Clocks

This is a fun, ready to use 11 lesson laser cutter project that I have successfully run with Yr8 students for a few years, but would be equally suitable for Yr9 or even adapted slightly to cater for KS4. It introduces students to Techsoft 2D Design and how to use the laser cutter. It also includes information on Memphis and students will need to study this movement so that they can use it as a source of inspiration. There is also some investigative work on plastics. As the work progresses there are a number of aspects that students can work on, so there is a certain amount of independence and self management - especially for the more able. I usually limit the number of colours students can use to a maximum of four, ( I may go to 5 with particularly competent students) and some students will only use two colours. I have used both Essex Grey Board and Foam Board for modeling and testing purposes and both have their merits. Depending on the quality of your laser cutter, the Foam Board may not be a viable option. Either way, modeling first helps students get to grips with iterative designing and they are able to test their 2D Design drawings as well as the designs and then modify their 2D Designs accordingly. This pack includes a full set of lesson PowerPoints for 11 lessons, with starters, plenaries, lesson objectives and Thinking School methodologies if your school is into that. There is a student workbook which I uploaded and got students to use electronically, but a few quick modifications ( deleting some instructions) and it could simply be printed out for students to use in hard format. I have left both the lessons and the workbooks as PowerPoints so you are able to make your own alterations.
