KS3 Textiles Student handbook

KS3 Textiles Student handbook

(2)
The perfect way to introduce KS3 students to new textiles equipment - get them to create their own reference book. Use this alongside the other workbooks available to download on my resources page as well as the D&T NC Criteria booklet. This document should ideally be kept throughout the students KS3 learning to allow them to use their own notes as a reference during their practical lessons.
KS3 FASHION BRANDS project booklet

KS3 FASHION BRANDS project booklet

(4)
This project allows students to explore the the world of fashion brand design. Instead of drawing out design ideas I encourage the students to 'model&' ideas with actual fabric samples demonstrating different surface techniques (print, applique and embroidery etc.) This booklet should be used with the KS3 NC criteria assessment booklet. *NEW 2013-14 VERSION UPLOADED AS A PDF * COMPLETE WITH ASSESSMENT CRITERIA EMBEDDED WITHIN THE WORKBOOK Check out my blog to see what some of my students have made: http://mrsartytextiles.wordpress.com/2013/03/23/student-work-ks3-year-8-fashion-project/

Edexcel Art and Design Textiles student marksheets

(0)
Edexcel GCSE individual student marksheets. Ideal for providing a snapshot of written evidence for the moderator to justify your marks. They are also handy for quick assessment feedback for students at regular points throughout the course These sheets have always been praised by the moderators when I have used them as they clearly outline my thought process when assessing the students work.

Edexcel Art and Design Textiles course handbook

(0)
Art and Design Textiles course handbook for new year 10 students to outline the expectations of the course and the structure of the assessment process. I give printed copies to my students as well as having the main chunks of the text enlarged and fixed to the GCSE 'learning and assessment board&' in my classroom for students to use as a reference. This document is uploaded as a word document for you to edit to your needs.

Edexcel Art and Design Textiles student support

(1)
For students who need a little extra support or for use after a midpoint assessment for all students to improve their expected grades. Weekly tutorials are required alongside this document - encourage students to identify their own areas for improvement based on peer assessment or tutorials. An ideal support document to encourage students to be more responsible for improving their work.
AS Art & Design Textiles Planning

AS Art & Design Textiles Planning

(1)
For anyone using the Edexcel Art and Design AS spec and wants a bit more structure. Included are 2 documents - a Teacher version of the year plan (specifically adapted for Textiles) as well as the 'Student Year Plan&'. The Student version of the documents can easily be printed off to create a student handbook for the course or presented on a notice board (which is how I use it) to allow students to track their learning and be prepared for their lessons. Remember - Including students in their assessment process is the key to improving results.

For teachers wanting to engage year 9 students and encourage them to be more creative with the textiles materials. This project can easily be completed between 6-12 weeks (depending on the depth of practical research and size of fabric outcomes.) This project is designed to be assessed with the 'KS3 NC level criteria booklet&' available in from my resources list. *NEW 2013-14 VERSION UPLOADED AS PDF* WITH EMBEDDED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA WITHIN THE WORKBOOK.

Edexcel Art & Design GCSE coursework project

We have ALWAYS had high praise for this project from the moderator.. and it ticks some other cross curricular links as it encourages students read a book to inspire artwork. This document should be used with the 'GCSE Student Guide to Assessment&' to encourage students to develop their own creative ideas. I start this coursework project from October in year 10 and aim to get students working on final pieces in the Summer term of year 10. Year 11 then continue to develop ideas for further outcomes for unit 1 up until their exam.

Edexcel Art & Design GCE personal study worksheet

A practical activity to support students in developing their own personal study theme. I use this as a group task to encourage discussions and sharing of ideas. Best used with highlighter pens to select key sections of the text. See my other resources for further support with this course or suggestions for personal study starting points.
KS3 D&T Student Assessment Booklet

KS3 D&T Student Assessment Booklet

(8)
Developed by a focus group of our KS3 students - this booklet is designed to be a more student friendly approach to assessing work at KS3. Includes a student version of the 'quality product&' criteria so that students can peer assess practical work. This booklet can be used by any area of D&T and ideally should be used consistently across teaching staff to enable students to become more independent in their understanding of the assessment process in all areas of the subject.

A Unit 1 coursework project ready to print off and give to students. The booklet guides them through the different starting points for the project and gives suggestions for further research areas. This project should be ideally used alongside the GCSE student guide to assessment resource and also involve the students actually reading at least part of 'Romeo and Juliet&'.

Edexcel Art & Design 'Student Guide to Assessment'

Use this document alongside the exam board assessment grid to help students to understand how they are assessed. This document has been really successful with my groups and allowed students to become far more independent with their work. I have the document laminated on binding rings for students to use in lessons to self assess their coursework and exam work.

An easier way of communicating the breakdown of the marks for each assessment objective for both Unit 1 coursework and the Unit 2 ESA. This document should be used alongside the exam board assessment grid - My moderator has always commented about how much easier it is to understand how Ive allocated the marks when Ive used these marksheets.

Details on my blog for an ideal mini project to introduce students to the use of different types of research to inspire their own developing ideas. Even though I will use the project to encourage students to develop textile outcomes, this project could easily be adapted by all Art and Design areas. Check my blog throughout the Autumn term 2013 to see how my own students respond to the project.
