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.

Blooming Brilliant Questioning Activity (D&T Edition)

Blooming Brilliant Questioning Activity (D&T Edition)

Although designed specifically for D&T, the questions can be easily tweaked for any curriculum area. This engaging hyperlinked powerpoint provides a Bloom's-based approach to questioning in lessons. Questions are differentiated in line with Bloom's Taxonomy to prompt differentiated questioning and to stretch and challenge pupils of all abilities. Pupils that I have used this with have enjoyed working their way up the difficulty scale. I have also used this resource in competitive activities, awarding more points for tackling higher level questions. You could even get pupils to create their own questions!

Projects on a Page full pack of 21 planners

The Projects on a Page scheme of work was introduced in 2014 to help primary schools in England implement the National Curriculum for D&T in an imaginative way. Based on universal principles of effective teaching and learning in D&T, it is also a valuable resource for schools in other parts of the UK and further afield. This scheme of work has been developed by the D&T Association’s Primary Working Group in association with D&T primary consultants. It comprises 21 A3 size project planners that give scope for teachers to use their creativity and professional judgment, whilst ensuring the quality, integrity and rigour of children’s learning. Each planner has 20-step planning guidance and accompanying teaching tips and techniques, a glossary, an example of iterative design appropriate to the project, and practical advice on using resources, useful sketches and diagrams in a helpsheet format to support teachers delivering the project in the classroom. Also included are suggestions on class organisation, links to resources and a glossary of technical terminology related to the project. A guidance booklet shows how to use the planners to full effect and the context in which they should be used.
