Personal Investigation essay guidance - art/photography

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.

GCSE Photography Exam - project overview and student checklist

(0)
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.

Photoshoot planning template with prompt questions

(0)
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 checklist

(0)
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.

Monday Challenges - ice breakers/ form time activities.

(0)
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.

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.

Aimed at GCSE Art students, this resource contains information on the artist, a lesson plan/powerpoint that would spread over a couple of lessons, includes literacy opportunities to write about the artist, as well as an A3 worksheet to explore the style and techniques of the artist.

GCSE project overview - Seedpods - 2D and 3D

(0)
This has been a really successful scheme of work. Students engaged with it really well, partly due to the variety of artists that I presented to them but also due to the potential for an abstract approach to the project. We did a lot of clay in this project, including a day with an artist which is something I'd highly recommend if you have the budget. The SOW is broken down by week, giving tasks linked to AOs, Skills focus and extensions for HPA. In addition to the SOW, I've also included a worksheet with artist images on that I used for this project.

Photography: slow shutter speed portraits

(1)
This worksheet guides students through a slow shutter speed portrait activity with different techniques and ideas to try, with visual examples. A really good task to teach students about slow shutter speed and the potentials for using long exposures. You'll just need a dark room and some torches!
Beatriz Milhazes pattern drawing and photoshop lesson

Beatriz Milhazes pattern drawing and photoshop lesson

(0)
This lesson worked really well with year 9, engaging them during the pattern drawing element of the task, and then teaching them some basic photoshop skills as a follow up lesson (using the worksheet). Students design a pattern page, you then need to scan their drawings ready for the following photoshop lesson where they add colour and further patterns. One tip - get students to press fairly hard in pencil or go over designs in pen so the scanner can see them clearly!

Speed dating ice breaker - new class

(0)
A simple ice breaker, ideal for a new class or a class with some new students to help them get to know each other a little and to encourage them to talk to each other. The worksheet explains the task clearly, with lots of simple conversation starters to get students talking.
