This is a challenging new book for primary teachers interested in developing their teaching of Design & Technology, subject leaders in D&T, and for student teachers choosing this as their specialty. It will also appeal to in-service providers and LEA advisory staff.
Children's creativity, cultural development and citizenship are important but currently underdeveloped in primary education. This book uniquely focuses on how these aspects can be emphasized in the teaching of Design and Technology. The National Curriculum has the potential to bring creativity, cultural development and citizenship into the mainstream and the authors show the considerable extent to which D & T, integrated with other curriculum subjects, can contribute to realizing these goals. There are examples throughout of best current practice showing how such ideas have been implemented.
