Description

Beginning by outlining the national curriculum for design and technology, Aspects of Teaching Secondary Design and Technology goes on to look at what design and technology is in the primary school, at examination level and post-16. Vocational qualifications relevant to design and technology are also discussed. There are chapters looking at the relationship between design and technology and the wider social and cultural context. The development of cross-curricular skills and value judgements are discussed as are sustainability and the role of the community in the teaching and learning of design and technology. Together, these articles comprise a sound guide to good classroom practice, related to the requirements of the curriculum, and rooted in the professional perspectives of experienced teachers.
