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.

Super Helpful GCSE Textiles AQA Coursework Guide 2018 Submission Only

This is a photo step by step guide with examples and prompt questions of how to complete the AQA Textiles Coursework for the last 2018 submission (as next year will be the new spec product design). This is a god send and will make your life a lot easier for this final year. Its very helpful and includes very single written aspect of the coursework to the point the booklet could deliver this side of the course for you if you needed textiles cover work for an absent teacher. Personally I use it along side teaching the course as a booklet that is kept in the classroom. I made this after going to an AQA coursework course a couple of years ago.
