AQA GCSE DT - NEA Tracker

(0)
Tracker for GCSE (AQA) DT Non-Exam Assessment (NEA) Practice. *Created to be used with the 'AQA GCSE DT NEA Practice Guide’ https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-gcse-dt-nea-practice-guide-12181643 However it can be used independently. Each column is a suggested page in the NEA. As students progress through, their work can be assessed page-by-page to give a GCSE grade standard (1-9). The grade is put in the corresponding column in the tracker. This is the only input required. Features: Auto generated section percentage Auto generated section score (out of 10 for research, out of 20 for evaluation etc) Auto generated overall score Second tab: Auto generated visual progress tracker, in a bar chart showing students their overall current grade out of 100, with seperate bar sections showing where they are achieving their marks, and where they are lacking marks. This allows students to self-identify their area of focus to improve. This tracker is intended for use when conducting a NEA practice, and is not intended for use with the live NEA, when students may require a less prescriptive approach

GCSE DT Knowledge Organiser - Paper and Board

(0)
AQA GCSE Design and Technology - Knowledge Organiser for Section 4 - Paper and Board Knowledge Organiser containing all of the key words needed in Section 4 - Paper and Board, in preparation for the AQA GCSE Design and Technology exam. The sections in this knowledge organiser are aligned with the sections in the AQA GCSE Design and Technology revision guide by CGP Books. This knowledge organiser is particularly effective when used in combination with our other theory resources to be found in our store. Knowledge organisers are also available for all other sections (Sections 1-5). Suggestions for use: Print out the knowledge organisers as a booklet for your GCSE students.

AQA GCSE DT 2.4 Textiles

(0)
AQA GCSE Design and Technology (DT) - Exam Theory - Section 2.4 - Textiles This resource contains all of the key knowledge that the students are required to know for Section 2.4 - Textiles Natural Fibres Renewable Resources Biodegradable Cotton Wool Silk Synthetic Fibres Elastane Polyester Polyamide Renewable Resources Biodegradable Yarn Thread Fabric Woven Knitted The sections in these resources align with the sections in the AQA DT revision guide by CGP Books, which gives students absolute clarity when progressing through the theory required for the exam. These resources have been developed with the following goals in mind: Allows learners to work through the theory independently, promoting challenge for all learners and ability levels Disruptive students have less effect on the progress of the learners, as the resources encourage independent learning. Promotes a love of learning, as learners self-motivate. This is particularly effective when the series of resources is used in combination with a tracker designed to show learners their progress through the resources. Allows independent home learning to be set that follows on and links clearly with the classwork. Ensures that students have covered all theory required for the exam, with absolute clarity *(particularly effective when used with a tracker) Suggested strategy: This resource is one sub-section. When used as a complete section the following strategy can be adopted: Begin the lesson by discussion of key words and ideas required in this sub-section. This can be enchanced with related videos from sites such as YouTube. Encourage students to independently research each concept they come across in the activity by using the internet, CGP revision guide, knowledge organiser (Available seperately), peer discussion, teacher discussion etc. At the end of each resource there are exam-style questions to prepare students for how the knowledge may need to be applied in the exam. When the sub-section is complete, students get this checked by the teacher and marked off on your tracker (which I recommend you set up, student names down the side, sub-sections along the top). The student can then move on to the next sub-section at their own pace, or if you wish to keep the class at the same point, they can act as consultants for the other students in the class, further cementing their knowledge. These resources have been tested, developed and implemented across our academy and have had a drastic impact on student preparedness for the exam, exam results, and student engagement with the course. The resources can also be used at KS3 in preparation for the GCSE course

Students can work on different sections where appropriate, and in many cases students may wish to complete sections individually in their own time and bring them back to be ‘checked off’. Each AQA GCSE DT Theory resource includes exam style questioning which can be used to further check understanding of each section upon completion.
