Peer Assessment, final product or model

Peer Assessment, final product or model

Description: This is a simple peer assessment task that allows KS3 pupils to assess a peer's final product or model that they have produced. It prompts them to identify something that has been done well, whilst also highlighting an area to target for improvement. Objective: Encourage pupils to create a balanced, critical view when evaluating a product. By promoting the evaluation of someone else's work, they are able to look at the product objectively without bias, particularly if the product they evalaute is not that of the person they sit next to. Assessment: It can be used to inform AoL and formally documented by a teacher, or used more readily in session by a teacher who can then recall common targets for improvement, discussing with Q&A how these could be achieved. Prior Knowledge: The criteria of the project, which will have been set by the classroom teacher or discussed in the form of a specification possibly. Expectations: Pupils should begin to create a balanced, structured argument about products in general. They should use their K&U along with their experiences to identify and set appropriate targets for themselves and their peers. Hints: These can be folded, hole punched and, with some string, tied to the product. To save on labour, the kids can do this, and it creates a simple kinaesthetic element to the evaluation. Another way to do this is to print them, cut them out and glue them together. Laminate them and the pupils can then complete them with water-based markers, which can easily be wiped off. This is more time-consuming, but saves time in the lesson and saves materials in the long run

Creating a Rainbow Scratch Picture in paint.net

Creating a Rainbow Scratch Picture in paint.net

This is the computer version of an art activity that used to involve colored crayons, black paint and drawing by scratching in the wet paint with the blunt end of a paint brush. Designed for teachers needing to include some computer technologies in their junior and middle school art programs the resource pages can be be used as a student handout or as a reference for guided instruction. The software named in this resource is paint.net (readily available and free ) but the instructions given are easily transferable to any paint or photo-manipulation software with layered transparencies. The zip file included contains a paint.net file that has the colored background and black top layers already created. This could be used as a template for younger students, allowing them to simply draw and have the background colors show through. Please complete a review of this resource if you have found it useful.

GCSE Buddhism (OCR B / AQA) 20 Lessons - Very High Quality - Complete Resources (Lesson Plans, Worksheets, Presentations)

GCSE Buddhism (OCR B / AQA) 20 Lessons - Very High Quality - Complete Resources (Lesson Plans, Worksheets, Presentations)

This course has been made specifically for the new OCR B Religious Studies specification (2016 onwards). It has been designed around the OCR B specification, consequently it is also fully sufficient to teach the AQA specification (and will be useful to teachers teaching on Edexcel, which is slightly different to OCR B/AQA in terms of course contents) It covers all necessary material for the 'Beliefs, Teachings & Practices' section (Section A) of the course in relation to BUDDHISM. It is the product of many weeks work: I have aimed to make these resources such that every lesson would receive a good or outstanding rating if inspected. All lesson downloads include: -A detailed lesson plan: explaining objectives, differentiation, cross-curricular aims, AfL tasks, and an activity timeline. -A presentation file designed to the highest professional standard. -Integrated and varied AfL -A suggested homework task The course features 15 worksheets, a 'Buddhist board-game' template, various 'knowledge hunt' activities and also features an IT Suite Lesson. It is designed to be a complete course for the first year of GCSE Religious Studies teaching. Downloading this bundle will certainly save you many many hours of preparation time: as a practising Buddhist I hope it will allow Religious Studies Teachers to teach the Buddhist component of their chosen GCSE specification. Positive reviews are warmly welcomed: I have made this course with pride and hope you will find it comprehensive and useful. "May you be happy, may you be healthy, may you be peaceful."

Embroidery Stitch Videos - Step by Step

Embroidery Stitch Videos - Step by Step

This resources provide you with videos showing step by step processes to do 7 of the core embroidery stitches. This is perfect for KS2, 3, 4 and 5 as the video show you exactly how to do each stitch from start to finish. This is also great for first timers who want to learn embroidery. The stitches are: Running, Back, Laced, French Knots, Blanket, Cross and Chain I created these for a specific purpose to start off with and that was to differentiate for the LAL's. Reality is, having these on a loop in the lesson has meant all students have been much more independent learners and managed to problem solve themselves before always shouting out 'Mrs'. The videos are great for quick little recaps but I mainly create them into GIF's and place them into a powerpoint as they then play on a continuous loop throughout the lessons. They aide with your demonstration as they can watch both and also most kids are now used to watching instructional video's (like TASTY) on their phones that they seem to respond much better to this than written instructions or just one still image. These took me forever to make with over 60 images per video but I put them on here before these have been so beneficial to me, I bet they would work really well for you too! You will use these FOREVER!
