Assessment for learning and student feedback
As students provide evidence of their learning during class activities the teacher will provide oral feedback to students.
The teacher will provide written feedback to students on their excursion research.
The teacher and peers will assess group posters and provide oral feedback.
The teacher will provide written feedback to students on their fabric study.
The teacher will provide written feedback to students on their appropriate selection of materials.
The teacher will provide constant oral feedback to students during the production process.
Students will complete an oral self-evaluation and a written peer-evaluation on the completion of their textile item.
The teacher will provide written feedback to students on the completion of their project work (textile item and student documentation).
Literacy and Numeracy Focus
Literacy & numeracy skills are developed throughout each unit of work. Tasks which assist in the development of these skills include:

report writing/essay/research written and graphical presentation of tasks

glossary associated with the unit labelling of sketches and samples
mind map of possible design features measuring altering patterns/garments
calculation of necessary materials
Reading and interpreting pattern information & sewing instructions information transfer
in class reading

Multicultural Differentiation of the Curriculum
Students consider cultural issues when choosing textiles. This unit offers a wide range of opportunities for all students to excel in an
area of their choice, whether it be sketching or practical sewing. It will be very
practical based, ie. Hands on which appeals to the students who struggle with
the rigours of theory-based work.
Project work can be simple or more complicated depending on the students
Scaffolds will be developed for students having difficulty with theory work.
