Levelled Key words for Design & Technology

Discussion in 'Design and technology' started by choccysnowflakes, Jul 3, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    Does anybody know how to appropriately level words for DT. I am aware of reading ages, but this does not help with setting words up appropriately gor a particular level of the NC.
    Anybody have any suggestions or know how to do this?

  2. Hi, I've just dropped a powerpoint into the D&T/KS3/Resistant Materials area called Levelling Literacy. I developed last term with the English department so that I could show the pupils what level of Keywords they were using and how they could raise their literacy levels.
    Hope it helps.
  3. Useful powerpoint - thanks
    ironic spelling mistake on title slide?
  4. No just bloody Microsoft reverting everything to American English. ***!

  5. Cheers :) Wondering if you have done any more work on Literacy for Learning in Technology. It will be a big key focus on our school across all subjects. Do you have any work on how to structure the sentences in DT too, e.g. writing a plan of making, evaluationg, discussing and describing design ideas / research?
