Title: Wild Thing

Date: 2014-15

 

Year Group: 9

Number of Lessons: 12

 

Lesson 1

Objective: To understand the requirements of the project

 

To analyse the brief and develop a suitable design concept

 

Starter: “1 thing I remember from Yr 8 Textiles”. Select students to recall one technique/skill they remember from year 8

 

TA: Recap H&S through Q&A

 

Hand out Project Sheets and introduce project. Show examples of photographs from the ‘Stuffed Magazine’ and finished products. Go through brief and model how to analyse brief using notes and sketches

 

PA: Analyse brief through brainstorming including sketches

 

TA: Show and discuss examples of concept board

 

Plenary: write a plan of research – what do you want to find out, possible sources, images etc

 

Homework

Research the styles of 3 different designers or illustrators, whose designs you can use to influence your own designing.

Annotate with features that you like and why and how you could use them

 

.

 

 

Lesson 2

Objective: To understand the possibility of smart materials and electronic components within textiles and investigate different textures and colourways of fabrics

 

To develop a range of suitable design ideas using your concept board

 

Starter: Match Smart material with its explanation

 

TA: Discuss and show the use of Smart materials and electronic components in textiles. Show students pack of fabric types so that they learn fabric names and properties. Discuss and go through homework task

 

PA: Use concept board to develop initial ideas. These should be coloured and annotated

 

Plenary: collect classes ideas together and lay out, students to make quick sketches and notes to generate ideas which will help students to develop their designs for homework

 

Homework

 

Source fabric

(give students a few weeks notice so they can organise fabrics)

Lesson 3

Objective: To develop knowledge of fabrics and be able to apply to own design ideas

 

To understand the importance of modelling

 

Starter: Reflection of design ideas

 

PA: Complete initial ideas including annotation of materials

 

TA: Demonstrate modelling ideas using card. Discuss use of gussets

 

PA: Start modelling

 

Plenary: Thumbs up/down for fabrics based on discussion earlier in lesson

 

Homework

Create 2 design ideas for completed soft monsters, annotate with descriptions of fabrics, components and techniques. Explain how you have been influenced by the designers that you researched

 

 

Lesson 4

Objective: To be able to analyse other’s designing and use knowledge gained to develop  your own ideas

 

Starter: Students complete a “first glance” analysis of an existing product using set criteria (use whiteboard)

TA: How to carry out a detailed product analysis

 

PA: Continue with modelling. Opportunity to complete machine and hand samples. Annotate and evaluate models and samples using notes and sketches (Development sheet)

 

Start design of final concept

 

Plenary:
