Unit 1 Level 2 NQF - Human Lifespan Development

Two outstanding lessons merged into one Power Point that could easily be stretched across three lessons consisting of; differentiated learning outcomes, starters, plenaries, key terms and exam technique. The lesson focus is an introduction to the unit and the life stages in general which also provides an understanding of PIES. I will upload this unit every two/three lessons. The lessons are planned using the Unit 1 Pearson textbook and specification for the new level 2 NQF course level 3 lessons will also be uploaded for Unit 7, 1 and 2 - Level 2 Unit 2 and Unit 4 lessons are already available.

It is tailored for use with the AQA A-level English Language course (7702).The seven-page pack contains the following sections: 1) A checklist of things pupils need to do to write a successful answer.

Exploratory discussion cards

Exploratory discussion cards

Student discussion rarely invoke real analysis and driving forward of ideas. They either agree or conflict with each other which doesn't move them forward. Print these cards off on different colours. Each student has a set. They need to 'play' their card to contribute meaningfully to the discussion. Make up the rules to suit, but getting rid of all our cards first always seems to raise levels of engagement.Use in conjunction with cooperative learning mat where responsible/higher ability students might facilitate the discussion and monitor participation

Example evidence for teaching standards & bullets

Example evidence for teaching standards & bullets

Example evidence for TS standards, including highly detailed examples of acceptable evidence for each 'bullet point&' (or sub TS-element) for the 2012 Teacher Standards... I found it difficult to ascertain what &';evidence' counts for each TS & TS-sub-standard, so I have collated acceptable lists from my University training, NQT local authority guidance and mentor guidance into this handy document. Useful for NQT&'s, mentors, student teachers and others. *** Added a condensed, cleaner version in Nov 2014 *** Mike.

Everyday Objects -Art and Design - AQA GCSE Introductory Drawing & Painting SOW Y9, Y10, Y11 KS4

An introductory GCSE Unit focusing on a range of drawing and painting techniques. Also has annotation guides and lessons designed to help pupils with contextual research and artist analysis, as well as several pages explaining the AQA GCSE Assessment Objectives and grading criteria. The focus is on primary source observation and engagement with AQA GCSE Assessment Objectives, although it could easily be modified for BTEC or similar qualifications. This Unit of Work was written for a Y9 GCSE class, but it would also be suitable for Year 10/11. Includes artist suggestions and step-by-step walkthroughs of painting and drawing techniques, e.g. watercolour, acrylic, gouache as well as a selection of dry media. This is an extensive resource and would easily last September-Decemeber, if not longer. It is a workshop based unit with the opportunity for pupils to design a final outcome at the end. Also includes a lesson that was used for an observation and was graded at 1/Outstanding.

Assessment and Marking in Art & Design - worth £21.50!

Assessment and Marking in Art & Design - worth £21.50!

These 10 tried and tested resources are designed to be practical, meaningful and efficient. Many share assessing objectives with your students from the start which is best practice. 1) Assessing a Drawing A grid to help assess an observational drawing. The grid looks at line, tone, shading, detail and accuracy. This could be used for teacher, peer or self assessment. 2) Assessing a Photograph An essential rubric for teaching students to assess their own photographs. I would use this with students who are new to photography. It looks at: Focus Background Composition Topic Lighting 3) Peer Marking and Self Assessing a Lino Print A useful resource to peer mark or self assess a lino print at the end of a project. Both forms are words document so fully editable. Both forms of assessment include questions with tick boxes and sections which students need to write in. 4) Peer Marking and Self Assessing Observational Drawing A simple table to fill in that your students can use to Self Assess or Assess their peers with. Stick the table in a sketchbook or on the back of a drawing. Share these assessment criteria with your students before they start working! This will show your students exactly what you are looking for! 5)Peer Marking and Self-Assessing Watercolor These simple tables for your students to fill in, ask all the right questions for them to analyse their work. There is a table for self assessment and a table for peer assessment 6) Marking a Drawing with a Target - Stickers Don't you find you are writing the same thing again and again when you mark drawing? The attached 7 pages of stickers will CUT YOUR MARKING TIME IN HALF as they give a target for the 7 most common mistakes. Stickers include targets for: improving the overall shape, not giving a drawing a dark outline, adding more detail, smoother shading, not working too faintly, not working too small, not smudging work. 7) Marking Art & Design Compositions - Stickers Don't you find that when you are marking compositions that you are writing the same thing again and again? These stickers address that problem! This set of stickers includes each type of error students make both as a target and as a Question. (I know that in some schools like mine, you have to mark with a question!) Targets and Questions include: annotation, identifying students best design, colour, contrast/tone, links to artists, quality of drawing, and using the space on the page well. 8) How do I mark AS & A Level Art? - A solution! How do you mark AS and A Level art in a meaningful way without writing on their work? How do you include peer and self assessment? How can you and your students see if they are fulfilling the assessment objectives at a glance? These two sheets, one for teacher marking, one for peer and self assessment, simple go in the back of their sketchbooks. They are divided into the 4 new assessment objects and you as teacher write how they are fulfilling the assessment objects, what is missing, what they can improve on. On the peer & self assessment sheets they do the same, and this can create an effective and relevant starter to any lesson. I have also uploaded an example of each that I have filled in with the sort of marking I would do, and the kind of response I would hope that students would write on the peer and self assessment sheet. I hope this gives you the idea of how I use these sheets. 9) How to Mark GCSE Art Coursework Meaningfully This is a two page document/table that I use (tried and tested over many years!) to mark Yr 10 and 11 GCSE course work. I stick this in the back of their sketchbooks. It gives me space to mark but also space for peer assessment and self assessment. I date the comments that I add. Students respond. I have included a copy that I have filled which has blue for the teachers comments and green for the students comments. (I'm not suggesting you should use specific colours - this is just to give you the idea!) It includes space to mark: Title Artist Research Page(s) Artists analysis Recording with Different Media Photography Development or Other pieces of Work Compositions It is a Word document so would be easy to tweek. I hope you find this useful and if you do please leave some positive feedback. 10) Strategies to Reduce Marking in Art There is no magic bullet to make marking disappear but try these strategies and you should see your marking load decrease! This 3 page document includes: One Clear Target Peer Marking and Self-Assessment A Verbal Feedback Stamp GCSE and A-level Tutorials Setting Meaningful Homework That Doesn't Need Marking (6 ideas) When You Mark / Time of Day Planning For The Above
