BTEC Engineering Level 2 Unit 1 The Engineered World - Multiple Choice quizzes.

(0)
The biggest hurdle in BTEC is to ensure learners achieve a level 2 pass in the online exam. Our less able learners don't/won't/can't revise especially as the pressure mounts and they loose the will to write generate statements on rote! This is a set of fully editable multiple choice tests (55 marks in total) which could be given to those L1/P learners whilst other students focus on long answer questions or used as starter tasks. I've tried to cover all/most topics. Answers sheets included (I think I'll laminate mine) for students to self/peer assess the answers (making it look like you've done enough marking to statisfy your senior leaders/OFSTEDS unquenchable thirst for evidence.) Some are manufacturing process ordering questions, some are generic questions similar to those in the online test. Enjoy! Any suggestions/comments please get in touch.

Level 2 BTEC Engineering Unit 7: Machining Techniques D1 Advantages and disadvantages of tools.

(1)
A series of resources and lesson plan for 2-3 lessons that focus on preparing students to explain the advantages and disadvantages of different tools. In the main lesson students share different tool advantages and disadvantages and play forehead detective (where they stick one short slip of information on their forehead) and then sort themselves from most important to least important. This helps them to learn what the different benefits and pit falls of tools without having to sit and learn them on rote. It contains short bursts of reading and no writing so will keep your "lads" occupied and weaker students engaged, focusing all learners whilst helping your strong students understand how to approach D1. p.s. Student will be one their feet for most of the lesson! The follow up lesson gives the stronger students the opportunity to record the advantages and disadvantages of the tools they need to in a simple tick box audit. (Both the main PowerPoint and audit are editable if your centre has chosen different tools to mine or you think of anything I've missed, it's past midnight and I've got a full day tomorrow!) I've also thrown in a M1 diamond nine, "which tool is most useful worksheet?", which could be used before or after this lesson, or could be completed by your Pass grade students whilst your Merit and Distinction students take the audit. I gave mine the choice if they were Pass/Merit to do either and made the Distinction students do both, because I am a horrible person. Please note that students will need to include work holding devices to achieve M1 and D1, I am going to be looking at preparing work for these next so watch this space.

This resources is an adaptable lesson PowerPoint including worksheets covering the advantages and disadvantages of Titanium, Tungsten, Superalloys, Modern high performance ceramics, Kevlar and Optical Fibres. In the bell task students can annotate the first slide in pairs or teams to establish prior knowledge. The main task is a series of six fact slides, one for each material. I print and place these on the tables and then students can move around the room to each table copying down the facts. However, you could a copy of each material slide to a table and use KAGAN strategies (5 minutes - 10 minutes per slide to copy each and swap) if they are a lively bunch or you want them to remain seated. Discussions for a plenary or save for your next starter. If you are unsure there are some free Unit 1 resources for other topics available so that you see my resources in more detail before committing to buy! Free for NQT's, just get in touch.
