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!!
