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.

NEW GCSE Design and Technology (9-1) Homework Pack (Written for the AQA Specification)

NEW GCSE Design and Technology (9-1) Homework Pack (Written for the AQA Specification)

For the new GCSE in Design and Technology - first teaching in September 2017. Written for the AQA specification. There are three keys to success in GCSE exams: subject knowledge, exam technique and confidence. Our GCSE homework packs have been written by former senior examiners and outstanding teachers. They contain at least one separate worksheet for every sub-section of the named GCSE specification, written in the style of exam questions. These are each supported by an associated mark scheme. The questions can be printed and set as homework activities to support the lessons covering each area of subject knowledge, or for revision. They can then be used as a peer assessment activity with students marking each others’ work, or marked by teachers. By using these worksheets, learners can consolidate or develop their subject knowledge. They can also increase their understanding of what the questions are asking for and how to answer them – therefore also helping to increase their confidence. This addresses all three of the keys for success in their GCSE exams! This resource includes: Teachers' notes, suggesting how the resource can be used effectively. A series of over 50 individual worksheets containing exam-style questions (at least one worksheet for each sub-section of the specification). Immediately following each work sheet, a mark scheme for that question. What teachers have said about our homework packs: 'What a fantastic resource... I think it's brilliant!' - Steve Ridley, Middleton Technology College 'The homework packs are absolutely fantastic!' - James Longridge, Head of D&T - Heckmondwike Grammar School 'The homework pack is fab!!
