GCSE photography

Discussion in 'Art and design' started by dawnrogers, Sep 17, 2012.

  1. Hi
    I'm teaching the short one year GCSE photography course this year, I wondered if anyone had any scheme of work ideas they might be prepared to share with me?
    The students are really keen and are picking up the technical,side but I'm looking for new ideas to go forward with.
    Any suggestions would be very welcome.

    Worth going on a course for this?
  5. Please may I, too? I'm just delivering the GCSE course for the first time nervously! My most vulnerable areas are in guaging the right pitch. Incidentally, I can vouch for the usefulness of Susan Coles' Lighthouse course.

  7. Sorry to add to your burden but I wonder if I might also request more information on the way you deliver your GCSE and A levels.
    My wife and I teach in Primary and Sec schools in West London and have been asked to provide GCSE support in several schools.
    thanks very much Philip
  8. Dear spencer762, could I also be cheeky and ask to see your scheme of work as I am also teaching photography gcse with the first cohort in my school.
  9. I'd be interested in this as well. I'll message you my email.

    I would also appreciate a copy if that's ok, I've put together some stuff of my own but would like to see what I might have missed.

    Many thanks

  12. Hi just joining this group as I'll be running a one year photography GCSE next year. My colleague is going on a course in July and we have a day for planning what we're going to deliver.

    Artcrisis's link above looks like an ideal course for you - alas, not 'till November though if I read the dates correctly. (I like you was seeing what photographic groups were available on TES ... does seem to be a case of tumbleweed city - love the Avatar btw!)
  14. spencer762 - would it be possible to see your department's approach to Photography - t.smith@cantab.net

    I'm a children's poet and would you like to hold a photography competition for a photograph to illustrate a poem? The winning photo could go on my website with the poem and children would know that their photograph, with my poem, would go into classrooms worldwide. Last year my poems went into classrooms in 188 countries. Dawn, contact me. My email is on my Welcome Page (Google JOSIE'S POEMS).

  18. Like most people in the forum, I am also new to the AQA GCSE, AS and A-Level Photography course. I'll be teaching both GCSE and AS in the fall and would love to get started on developing (or acquiring) the resources and wrapping my head around a scheme of work.

    If anyone can offer assistance I can be reached at aleks.todorovic@johnmadejskiacademy.co.uk

    I'll happily share resources I develop during the year if anyone is interested.

    Many thanks!
