'Common Misconception in Design and Technology' Help!!

Discussion in 'Welcome lounge and forum help' started by pedrolover, Dec 30, 2008.

  1. Good Morning everyone!!

    I have to start planning an assignment whereby I need to select one misconception in my subject and plan and teach two lessons which try to address and overcome the misconception.

    I am GTP teaching mainly KS3/4 textiles, and feel most confident teaching this subject but I do also teach food to KS3.

    I was wondering whether anyone can think of any misconceptions BY THE STUDENTS in these two subjects in DT?? I have read through previous posts but feel none of those are really appropriate for my school.

    A previous student on my course wrote her essay on tacking which I feel was viable topic but feel that I cannot be seen to use that misconception. Also I don't feel that I can approach and fully overcome the whole gender issue that girls do textiles and boys do RM in two lessons!!

    Any feedback would be wonderful!! I have asked my department for advice but alas nothing was suggested!

    Please help me!!
