1 Practical Assessment

Assessment Title Portfolio of Textile Techniques
Task Description

Rationale for this Assessment:

During the 4 day intensive practical workshop you will construct sewing samples and use various textile techniques to gather and display a physical and virtual portfolio suitable as a teaching and learning resource in classrooms with students from Year 7 to 12. In addition to building your confidence to manipulate textiles and equipment, you will be provided with strategies to teach textiles classes including how to make teacher judgments, provide student feedback, working with difference contexts for learning, selection and sequence of learning activities and teaching strategies. During the Residential School you will be working in a school textile and sewing workroom. A series of practical tasks will to be undertaken over the duration of 4 days, and recorded in your Creative online portfolio (process journal) which will also contribute to Assessment Task 2.

These practical tasks include; however, are not limited to:

Samplers:

  • Gathering to an interfaced waist band
  • Inserting a zip (no invisible zips)
  • Set in sleeve
  • Neckline facing (including iron on interfacing)
  • Self-trim for neckline
  • Hems
  • Darts
  • Pockets
  • Buttons
  • Practical stitches and seams

Felting

Creating textile mediums – being sustainable

Mixed media surface design

Graffiti

Tie Dye

Simple garment construction using a block pattern

Bag construction

Embellishments

You will be supported in development of each element by your tutor at Residential School.
Assessment Due Date Friday 7 July 4pm: progressively assessed over the duration of the four day intensive Residential School

2 Practical and Written Assessment

Assessment Title Online Educational Resources: Design Brief, Solution & Creative Process Journal
Task Description

Rational for this Assessment:

The design process and using ICTs in the classroom are integral components of contemporary Home Economics and Textile Technology. The purpose of this assessment is to develop online educational resources that include a creative process journal to capture and display the design process in action. This assessment is designed to support and build educator confidence to interpret and implement the Australian Curriculum and use a variety of ICTs including online tools to construct creative, innovative and fun Textile Technology teaching and learning resources. Weekly activities on the unit Moodle site all contribute to the development of Assessment Task 2. This assessment task will become a vital resource for your future Home Economics and textiles teaching practices.

Assessment Task 2 has three parts:

Part 1: Create a substantial educational online textiles website that addresses specific headings, topics and activities explored in weekly Moodle content; and

Part 2: Write a textiles design brief suitable for the Australian Curriculum; and

Part 3: Develop and construct your solution to the design brief, and create an online creative portfolio (process journal) to accompany your design brief solution.

Clarification and development of Assessment Task 2 will be scaffolded and supported by your tutor, participation in weekly Moodle activities, independent research, and independent practical tasks.

Research and Referencing

There is no set word limit for this assignment task; however, your educational online textiles resource and online creative portfolio should demonstrate evidence of research, including the collection and sorting of data. You must apply APA style referencing conventions including reference lists, and in-text referencing in your web-spaces. Guidance on how to apply APA referencing is available on the Moodle site.
