SECONDARY INDUSTRY- Ethical Shopping- Intro and Advert design- ENGAGING AND CREATIVE

SECONDARY INDUSTRY- Ethical Shopping- Intro and Advert design- ENGAGING AND CREATIVE

Used as a joiner lesson between introduction to secondary industry and Nike Sweatshops. The student learn about what Ethical Shopping is and how they as consumers have the power to change industry. They really enjoyed designing their adverts and were very proud when I put them on display. They produced them on computers but some did them on paper, both work as long as it is heavily sampled as many struggle at first with an adverts purpose and layout. The students will have lots of questions and I usually spend 3 lessons on this in total- 1st- introduce term and explain and assess sample ads/start designing. 2nd- Complete design and finish for homework. 3rd- Peer assess each other’s and link it to the environment. They then go on to learn about Nike and their understanding of ethical examples really helped them engage and progress. Please review if you download, thanks :)

China's Terracotta Army worksheet- Independent learning- TWO DIFFERENTIATED WORKSHEETS

China's Terracotta Army worksheet- Independent learning- TWO DIFFERENTIATED WORKSHEETS

For this lesson I wanted to use student’s work for display so we completed this task on paper and over the whole lesson so students could produce work they were proud of and everyone had an opportunity to contribute to the year 7 display. We watched an introductory youtube video- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4c_ADqshdSA&index=7&list=PLRc_0Mp9wmwgKyaMFYbCusDhzVRpDr_9f&t=0s And I mind mapped their thoughts and descriptions on the white board and then modelled the task using samples from previous classes. I print the worksheet in A3 and colour as the text is small and hare 1 between 2. The LA sheets are to be written on and everyone should complete the superstar extension, which I use as an exit plenary.
