S1 Design & Technology

.

Course Overview

We strive to maximise our students' involvement in design work. To achieve success in design, our students gain experience in freehand graphic skills relevant to the next design project. Topics covered include: 2D Freehand sketching, illustration (tone and texture), Book-worm project (design and manufacture), 1-point perspective sketching, illustration (reflective surfaces)

Organisation of Resources

Pupils are issued with a class folder for storing their classwork and homework.

Methodology

Our S1 course follows the Experiences and Outcomes outlined in A Curriculum for Excellence. We use teacher-led demonstration and many formative assessment strategies to give pupils the opportunity to demonstrate and improve their knowledge, practical skills and skills for learning, life and work.

Assessment

Pupils sit a test at the end of each block of teaching. The test assesses knowledge and understanding as well as problem solving skills.

 

Homework

Homework is set regularly to support and consolidate classroom experiences. Some homework assignments will require pupils to carry out research in their own time.
