Design Technology - Homework Challenge for Differentiation

Design Technology - Homework Challenge for Differentiation

Homework Challenge was developed to differentiate homework tasks for ALL students.This Homework Challenge resource not only makes homework more accessible for all types of students, but it also provides students with choice and engagement in how they would like to complete the task. Students are given a homework topic – this might be famous designers in DT, World War 1 in History or To Kill a Mockingbird in English. The student then decides how they would prefer to complete their homework. They research the topic (or already have some understanding of it from a previous lesson) and display their knowledge in one of the twenty different methods listed on the Homework Challenge sheet. The challenges are split into 3 different categories of easy, medium and hard (A,B,C). The challenges in the ‘Junior Designer’ category take less time to complete and are a little easier, whereas the ‘Creative Director’ challenges take much longer to complete and are slightly more difficult.Students complete their chosen challenge, hand it into the teacher (sometimes performing it to the rest of the class if they wish) and the teacher gets a wide variety of creative homework’s that are all about the same topic! You may decide to reward students based upon the level of challenge they choose (e.g. a postcard home if they complete a ‘Creative Director’ challenge). Fully editable PowerPoint document that can be adapted to suit ANY subject area.

Pride and Prejudice - Elizabeth Bennet

Pride and Prejudice - Elizabeth Bennet

In this engaging and informative lesson, students are enabled to make clear and insightful interpretations of Elizabeth Bennet – the chief protagonist in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. In particular, students learn about her key characteristics- such as her strong ideas, wit, intelligence, grace, and good humour – and relate these to ideas of societal expectations of the time. The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which students learn through: - Playing a fun and interactive quiz to determine the key events and family life of Elizabeth Bennet; - Establishing her characteristics and traits, utilising textual evidence; - Analysing Elizabeth's character in relation to the expectations of society in the Regency Era; - Creating clear and creative diary entries, using an in-depth understanding of Elizabeth's character; - Peer assessing each other's learning attempts. Included is: - Whole lesson PowerPoint - colourful and comprehensive; - 'Character Traits of Elizabeth' task resources - with teacher answer sheet; - 'Elizabeth in Context' task resources - with teacher answer sheet; - Comprehensive lesson plan. There are also opportunities for group learning, peer assessment, and whole class discussion. These resources were originally taught to GCSE students, but with subtle adaptations they have also been used with both younger and older (up to A Level) students. All images are licensed for commercial use, and image rights are listed on the last page of the presentation.

2016 KS1 SATs Gap Analysis (All Papers)

2016 KS1 SATs Gap Analysis (All Papers)

A complete bundle of Gap Analysis Grids (Reading, GPS, Spelling, Arithmetic and Reasoning) for the 2016 KS1 SATs assessments. I have also included links to the papers, the mark schemes and the conversion grids within each spreadsheet.

KS1 2016 SATs Maths Gap Analysis Grid (including tests and conversion tables) - SATs Prep

KS1 2016 SATs Maths Gap Analysis Grid (including tests and conversion tables) - SATs Prep

These are excel spreadsheets Gap Analysis documents for the 2016 Year Two SATs Papers for Maths . The sheet totals up the scores automatically and each child's final score changes colour to reflect their ability. If their total score for a subject goes green, it means they would have passed the 2016 SATs with that score. If it goes Green with a yellow font, it means that child would have achieved a 'More Able' score for that tested subject. I have also included an instructions and document page, linking to a freely available copy of each test, mark scheme and instructions. Additionally, I have included a link to the conversion tables from RAW Score to Scaled Score. All a teacher has to do is enter their children's names and enter the 0's, 1's, 2's or 3's for each question, which also change colour too for a visual reference. I recommend that a teacher should enter 'N' if a child did not attempt that question. This gives an idea of who is not even attempting certain questions, not just whether they got the question wrong. The sheets are set up for 32 pupils but more can be added/deleted and instructions are on the first page/sheet. Some cells are locked/protected in this document but the parts that you need to insert yourself are editable. This is so that the formulas/algorithms do not break and render the spreadsheet's functionalities as broken. I take requests for Gap Analysis Grids. Please leave feedback if you like this resource as I am planning to produce more for each SATs paper going forward, as well as CGP Practice Papers. Please remember to rate this resource as I made this to save teachers time. Thank-you.
