Understanding the Command Words in GCSE Exam Questions - NEW Design and Technology (9-1)

Understanding the Command Words in GCSE Exam Questions - NEW Design and Technology (9-1)

This is a PowerPoint explaining the common command words that could be used in exam questions for the subject, alongside a sample question and answer for each type of question. In order to maximise exam performance, it is vital that pupils fully understand the questions that they are being asked so that they are able to answer them effectively. This can make a huge difference to the grades that they achieve. In addition, with the increased emphasis on literacy in schools it is more important than ever that pupils can understand exactly what they are being asked to write and demonstrate a good command of the English language when presenting their answers. This PowerPoint based resource, written by a former senior examiner, is designed to be used by teachers in class to guide pupils through the common command words that could be used in AQA GCSE Design and Technology examination questions. These include which, state, give, describe, explain and discuss. It can also be printed/placed on a VLE for students to use as part of their GCSE revision. In addition to an explanation of each command word, the resource also provides a sample question and answer for each, giving pupils clear examples of how to structure their answers to each type of question.

ACCESS FM with Dragons Den Design Technology Product Design

ACCESS FM with Dragons Den Design Technology Product Design

In this creative, though theoretical lesson, students are introduced to/or consolidate their knowledge of Access FM. Students are given a series of Ikea lamps (though this could be easily changed to other products), which they must analyse using the ACCESS FM criteria. Students then consolidate their analysis into a short presentation through group-work, in a 'dragons den style' format. Introduction to ACCESS FM Preparatory Task Consolidation Task Presentation Peer assessment (vote) If you enjoyed this lesson, please see the other lessons in this or other Product Design series/SOW (where the full iterative design process is covered). In this unit, pupils will gain an understanding into what is product design and the creative process of a designer, from initial ideas, final isometric sketching, writing a specification and model making (prototyping).
