In order to support teachers and groups who may be accessing materials during their Professional Time, the CPD presentation has been divided into three separate sections for website publication.
Part 1: Teachers are afforded an opportunity to discuss and reflect on their experience of the learning journey in Graphics. Teachers discuss the process and value of the SLAR meeting. Teachers also have an opportunity to explore some of the NCCA examples of student work, particularly Classroom-Based Assessment 1: Communicating through sketching, which are available on www.curriculumonline.ie.
Part 2: This part of the day focuses on exploring pedagogical approaches to developing spatial reasoning in the Graphics classroom. Teachers see evidence of classroom practice to support spatial reasoning. Teachers engage with a practical task and discuss how to adapt the activity to suit their class context.
Part 3: This part of the presentation focuses on exploring the role of the SEC assessment components in Graphics, the student project and the sample paper. Teachers participate in several discussions on how these assessment components are embedded in the student’s learning journey.
Engaging with the SEC Graphics Sample Paper: This video highlights a method for aligning and mounting the A3 SEC Graphics Sample Paper booklet to a drawing board. The video also highlights some important General Instructions for engaging with the sample paper.
