GCSE Design & Technology New Specification WJEC Designer Profiles Investigate Analyse Work of Others

(0)
This resource includes A3 display posters for each of the chosen designers/company selected by WJEC for the new GCSE Design & Technology in Fashion and Textiles. This is perfect for the section: 2.1.1 (f) - “Investigate and analyse the work of past and present professionals and companies in the area of design and technology in order to help inform their own ideas”. The posters include a range/collage of images of each designers work and also an overview of the designer and the influences etc: The designers/company include: Stella McCartney (designer) Orla Kiely (designer) Laura Ashley (company) There is also a poster I made to help pupils learn how to analyse and investigate rather than simply describing the work of others with lots of suggestions and tips. Although these are designed as posters they could also be used as a supporting lesson presentation as they are all landscape and can be viewed perfectly on a projector/whiteboard to help with your own lessons based on the work of other designers and professionals. I hope they help you. And any feedback/errors are welcome!

This is an incredibly comprehensive PowerPoint Presentation including everything you need to teach your upper KS3 pupils how to design and make an eco-friendly stuffed toy. This was inspired by a group of very talented previous pupils. The brief: "I have been asked by the Environment Agency to design and make a stuffed toy in my choice of style, suitable for customers of my chosen charity, but using at least 25% recycled materials. To do this I must first write an ACCESS FM design specification, analyse similar products and research my theme." The project is assessed following a Dragon's Den style pitch at the end of the project. It was created for a full 20 week project but could be reduced for shorter rotations. It also includes images of handouts to be printed for the pupils. It includes: Health & Safety The Design Process Specification/ACCESS FM Product Analysis Moodboards Fabrics & Fastenings Excellent V's Poor Design Scheme of Work/Manufacture Plans Sustainability 6R's Supply Chain Transparency (Fashion Revolution) Sewing Machine Parts Activity CAD/CAM Applique Hand Sewing Stencil Print Block Print Tie-Dye Batik Seams Final Design Making Instructions Evaluation (7 slides) Dragon's Den Pitch Assessment (Home work and lines/detention slides) You can also buy the supporting instructional video of how to assemble the toys separately or as part of a bundle in my shop!

Question Tokens - Cross-Curricular - Get pupils to think for themselves!

(0)
This was created as I was getting a lot of irrelevant questions during my lessons which were taking up valuable teaching time. I overcame this by using these. Pupils are given 2 question tokens at the start of each lesson and the backs feature possible ways to get an answer without asking the teacher: Can I answer this myself? Is it urgent? Can someone else help? These are not designed to stop pupils asking questions but rather to think for themselves. The majority of the time pupils know the answer but don't think about it properly. and develop their own cognitive abilities. All you need to do is print these back to back, they have been tested several times to ensure they line up correctly providing you know which direction your printer prints! Laminate to make them last forever! Give it a try! You may save hours!

Nutritional Values Calculation Handout - GCSE & KS3 Food & Nutrition Technology

This handout is an excellent resource for calculating the nutritional values of any dish. Pupils add the amount of nutritional values for each ingredient of the dish they are planning to make. This includes: Fat; Calories; Protein; Carbohydrates and Fibre. They then add these up to work out the total value per dish of their choice and the divide this by the amount of servings. They can then add these amounts to create their own nutritional values label and a blank one is included in the sheet. This is the original Word document so can be fully edited to which ever values you want to calculate.
