Book Description

Learning to Teach Design and Technology in the Secondary School is a core text for all those training to teach design and technology in the secondary school. It helps you develop subject knowledge, acquire a deeper understanding of the role, purpose and potential of design and technology within the secondary curriculum, and provides the practical skills needed to plan, teach and evaluate stimulating and creative lessons.

This fully updated fourth edition includes information on all areas of design and technology, and on new subject requirements relating to exam qualifications. It includes three new chapters on the role of critiquing in design and technology education, transitions after secondary design and technology, and using and producing design and technology education research. Designed to be read as a course or dipped into for support and advice, it covers:

    • Each area of design and technology: materials, textiles, electronics and food
    • Integrating new curriculum topics, such as emerging technologies, into your teaching
    • Developing areas of subject knowledge
    • Health and safety
    • Planning lessons
    • Organising and managing the classroom
    • Teaching wider issues through design and technology 
    • Assessment issues
    • Your own professional development.

Bringing together insights from current educational theory and the best contemporary classroom teaching and learning, this book will prove an invaluable resource for students on all training routes – as well as their mentors – who aspire to become effective, reflective design and technology teachers.
