Personal Investigation essay guidance - art/photography

(0)
I wrote this for my A-level students as they needed something to help them write their essays for the personal investigation. It breaks down the essay into different subheadings, each with a guide on how many words to write and then a list of prompt questions to help with writing. There is also a guide to the required bibliography, and a final checklist. This version is written for photography students, but could be quickly altered for art/textiles etc.

This checklist lists all of the tasks that I expect all students to complete for a GCSE Photography project. It is colour coded linked to the AOs, features clear success criteria for each task, and offers a 'going for gold' extension to push the higher ability students. A really good resource for encouraging students to work independently, as well as for reference when structuring their projects.

Photoshoot planning template with prompt questions

This is a table that I have used with both GCSE and A-level photography students to get them to plan in more detail for photoshoots. Each subtitle has a few further prompts to get students to think in more depth. Great for the new requirement for written work in the GCSE.

GCSE Photography Exam - project overview and student checklist

There are two documents here - two different versions of the same thing, one more detailed than the other - both student friendly. One is an overview of the photography exam project structure, organised by lesson and task. It features brief information about each task, with details on things to consider and 'going for gold' extensions, aimed at the higher end students. The other document is a simplified checklist for students to track the tasks they need to complete for the exam project, encouraging them to work independently and outside of lessons.

A visual flow diagram for students to use to help them structure their experiments with links to photographers. It clarifies how to use photographers to inspire their experiments, with a focus on supporting them with refining their ideas to get the best marks in AO2. Written for GCSE but I've also used it with A-level, early on in the course with students that are new to the subject.

Photography Composition Guide Cards

These cards have been created to support students with composition in photography. They were written for year 10 as an introduction to the skill of using different compositions such as negative space, rule of thirds, leading lines etc. and will be a useful reference for year 11 as a visual reminder. There are 6 A4 colourful cards ready to be laminated, each for a different type of composition with clear tips, diagrams and photos for reference.

This resources is a double sided A3 learning mat which breaks down the AOs for students, highlighting what they need to do to be successful in each area. A particularly good resource for encouraging students to push for higher grades. Colourful, clear and student friendly, my classes have responded well to this resource and found it useful!

GCSE project overview - Architecture

(0)
This has been a really successful scheme of work. Students engaged with it really well, with a variety of painting, printmaking and mixed media work linking to artists such as Ian Murphy and Paul Kenton. We ran a trip to a local English Heritage venue which I'd recommend for photography and drawing - they're generally free if you lead them yourself! The SOW is broken down by week, giving tasks linked to AOs, Skills focus and extensions for HPA.

Monday Challenges - ice breakers/ form time activities.

I started these with my form class a couple of years ago to get students more active and motivated on a Monday morning! Minimal resources required, and guaranteed to get students having fun and working in teams quickly. There are 6 challenges here which will each last around 15 minutes, with a few silly 'Monday Memes' to put on the board as students come in to your classroom.
