The work of others - New D&T GCSE. Inc. SMCE issues, research methods and design stratagies

This is a 5 lesson resource pack to deliver the new GCSE content, focusing on The work of others module but also developing drawing skills and understanding research methods too. Students are to research and analyse, understand how designers use research and briefs to inform design decisions. A main component of this project is developing understanding of how Social, Moral, Ethical and cultural issues effect the products we design. Students are to develop their understanding of design strategies and working collaborative. I have delivered this to my year 10 class of 25 students, mixed ability. Activities include card sorts, articles to reduce into SMCE issues, research and team work.
