AO countdown plans for AQA GCSE ART & DESIGN

AO countdown plans for AQA GCSE ART & DESIGN

(0)
Art & Design GCSE teachers will find these countdown documents VERY useful. I have found that using them has boosted our grades to 5% above National Average - and I work in a deprived Academy! Each one charts the activities pupils can follow, as they plan for their final or mock exams. They could also be adapted for use with coursework projects. The issue many art teachers have [myself included!!] is OBLIGING pupils to make work, even if they are ‘stuck’ for ideas. These sheets minimise that possibility. They make pupils create outcomes, EVERY lesson. This generates work that is then presented for each Assessment Objective. I have found it really focusses and motiviates the pupils, if they have to mount up work for each AO on a display sheet. Each of these countdowns: has 3 tiers of difficulty for each task set - allowing you to differentitate can be adapted to suit your calendar - just change the dates, and number of 3 tiers lessons you need in each week can be printed off individually, or merged into one document, for display can be shared with parents/carers - electronically if you wish - so its easy for them too to know, what their children should be working on. So; no blank pieces of paper, and no blank stares from stressed out pupils, stuck for ideas! Do try these yourself, and let me know how you get on :-)

Art & Design GCSE teachers will find these countdown documents VERY useful. I have found that using them has boosted our grades last year to 16% above National Average - and I work in a deprived Academy! Each one, for each of the 4 assessment objectives, charts the activities pupils can follow, as they plan for their final or mock exams. They could also be adapted for use with coursework projects. The issue many art teachers have [myself included!!] is OBLIGING pupils to make work, even if they are “stuck” for ideas. These sheets minimise that possibility. They make pupils create outcomes, EVERY lesson. This generates work that is then presented for each Assessment Objective. I have found it really focuses and motivates the pupils, if they have to mount up work for each AO on a display sheet. Each of these countdowns: has 3 tiers of difficulty for each task set - allowing you / your pupil to differentiate can be adapted to suit your calendar - just change the dates, and number of 3 tiers lessons you need in each week can be printed off individually, or merged into one document, for display can be shared with parents/carers - electronically if you wish - so its easy for them too to know, what their children should be working on. I have included them in different formats; in word - so you can just print them off; trim off my own lesson dates or have your pupils alter them? in excel - so can adapt them to suit your own dates, and insert / delete tasks in excel - an overview of all 4 AO’s - that you can again adapt if you wish, then clip into your planner So; no more blank pieces of paper, and no more blank stares from stressed out pupils, stuck for ideas! Lesson by lesson, your exam work is produced… Do try these yourself, and let me know how you get on :-)

Mood & Colour - Painting to music - create your own Abstract Artwork

(0)
A fun and easy to understand powerpoint suitable for KS2 & 3 pupils, that explains how artists like Kandinsky used abstract art to depict emotions and music. As well as art making activity - it contains easy to use literacy templates for pupils to write about their art works, and sound clips to get the pupils listening, thinking, - and painting! Lesson objectives, starter, review and PLTS prompts are in the powerpoint slides, so its an easy and practical resource to use without adaptation. Suitable for non specialists and art teachers alike - who want to teach pupils about abstraction, and how colour can be used to explain emotions.

COVID Pandemic Learning Gap Closing tasks for AO1 AO2 AO3 AO4 A'level + GCSE Art & Design

(0)
Since schools have closed, and students have been working at home/remotely for so long, all will have gaps in their learning, to close. These resources will be especially useful for y10 and y12 pupils in Art & Design, but could be used by other years, too. There are 17 Resources in total. Centred on each AO [Assessment Objective] they rapidly oblige pupils to create art for assessment AO1 - how to research artists and make work in reponse to them. How to annotate the responses pupils make, using key words the exam boards want. AO2 - a range of activities centred on different materials and techniques, for pupils to do, and annotate their findings AO3 - observations and annotations. Tasks are set from real life and secondary resources. How to develop these ideas into the pupils own personal creative responses AO4 - developing and finishing pupils own personal responses, and preparing these for display, and assessment. Each AO is split into separate, chronologically sequenced tasks, starting with AO1. Each set has images, text and a set of 4 ‘independent study’ questions. All have literacy support materials and key words to use. Each task sheet is in word, to make them easy to upload and send home electronically or printed, and/or their content could easily be cut and pasted into your own lesson slides. There has been much talk in the Art & Design teacher community about how to routinely close the gaps created in pupils learning this year - so I have put these resources together to try to assist with that big task, at this very special time!

Lots of prompts for dialogue and agreement, and structured with clear rules and outcomes, so that pupils will understand what you want, whilst being empowered to take responsibility for their own compliance.

Adapted for use as a starter activity for TEAMS and ZOOM lessons. 26 individual lesson powerpoints on each set of key words, A-Z, plus a total A-Z powerpoint. Great to have open and on pause to get your pupils brains in gear, whilst they sign in to learn. Teaches new knowledge and regularly reviews and consolidates this. Includes key words on artists, media and techniques, as well as deliberate inclusion of architectural terms, as the NC now requires us to specifically include this. Will routinely enthuse and equip your Art pupils with an understanding of the key words they need to know and understand MORE in Art & Design! Particularly useful for GCSE and A’level Art and Design, especially to support Artist analysis and Personal Investigations • animated PowerPoint • illustrated - with both contemporary and historic sources • literacy task every 3 letters ��� artist & artwork analysis tasks Created specifically to address the DEEP DIVE requirement for the use of • LITERACY • KEY TERMS • FACTUAL KNOWLEDGE & RECALL • DEEP THINKING • REFERENCE TO ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN • CULTURAL CAPITAL • MULTI CULTURAL / NON EUROPEAN LINKS • ART, CRAFT & DESIGN REFERENCES, from a range of periods and styles - as now stipulated by OFSTED This resource is an extensive, illustrated, 43 slide presentation that works through the A-Z of Art & Design, picking out key words for each letter of the alphabet. Made using the current Oxford Dictionary of Art Terms, every word has its meaning explained, and pupils are asked to capture and demonstrate their learning, through tasks embedded. I use it as a starter activity in every lesson - groups record the keywords on a key words page in their books, and then use the words learnt in their subsequent writing. Massively promotes writing using key terms, and also teaches the History of Art at the same time!
AQA ART& DESIGN KS4 ASSESSMENT BUNDLE

AQA ART& DESIGN KS4 ASSESSMENT BUNDLE

(0)
3 Items that will make assessing your KS4 Art & Design pupils so much easier! Using the grade boundaries published by AQA last year, I’ve created resources that work for my own pupils, that tell them what grades they have - and so also - how to get better! Here are: An assessment grid in language pupils can understand - that you can highlight / write on - with the boundary marks for each GCSE grade, stated A sheet of last years grade boundaries - that you can print off, for pupils to glue into their folders / sketchbooks A marking tracker, that you can use to formatively record your marks on, with a space for pupils to write in their comments, too I have found that by sharing the marking I do, and giving the pupils the chance of a re-mark, pupils [and parents] now more readily not just the grade they have - but what they can do to get better. These helped us improve our departments marks by 10% to above national average last year!

Happy Book Presentation Checklist :-)

(0)
A handy checklist for presentation, you can print off and laminate into cards – 3 per sheet. I hand them to pupils as they enter the room, to use to check their book, as a settling / starter activity. OFSTED are placing a big emphasis on pupils pride in their work, and they see presentation in books as a real indicator of this! We find they work for us…… do use and let me know if they work for you?
