I have written this scheme to introduce musical theatre as a way into GCSE Performing Arts. Our school teach performing arts through music so the scheme is based on groups performing a musical song of their own choice. Please comment with any feedback.
This bundle provides a full coursework unit for the new GCSE Art specification. Aligned to both AQA and Edexcel specs. Included are scheme of work, step by step sketchbook guide, slideshows of relevant structure images, perspective slideshow and information on the new GCSE grades in relation to the present ones. Get all this for 48% cheaper than buying the resources individually.
2 project briefs designed to help students produce an independent project. I issue these at the start of AS photography course (before the Summer) so I can assess their way of working. students bring back some surprises!
List of art techniques for students to try within their work.
When I used this I got the students to select which techniques they wanted to try and which ones they could self study. I then planned skills workshops with smaller groups based on their choices.
This scheme of work is designed to get students thinking about mixed media rather than just presenting photographs. It links with the AO2- refinement of ideas and encourages students to explore mixed media methods of refining ideas.
When I taught this, I incorporated is as a mini project within a larger scheme to develop a wider range of experimentation. The other part of the scheme focused on computer editing and manipulation so the two worked well together to produce a varied body of experiments.
Included to download is:
1)Scheme of work. Week by week plan including homework tasks with resource list and outcome list. Each stage is also given a series of higher order thinking questions to use with students at this stage of the scheme of work to develop their HOT skills.
2) Project powerpoint and student notes sheet
3) Stitching/ Textiles in photography image inspiration powerpoint. This can be printed/ edited to suit. It contains lots of contemporary artists.
4) Project tutorial sheets to fill out when you have 1-2-1 discussions with the students about their ideas. This allows you to track their progress to their target grades and give them individual weekly tasks if they need it.
