Synopsis

TEACHING DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY 3E by John Eggleston

....this book deserves a wide readership. Practising teachers should find plenty to interest them. It looks like a clear favourite for the reading lists of students on initial teacher training courses.. - Design and Technology Teaching This book is very readable, besides being an important source of reference. It should be part of any induction courses for design and technology teacher training. - Design and Technology TimesDesign and technology is crucial to the national economy and to individual employment prospects. John Eggleston shows how this area of work has come to occupy a new and central place in the school curriculum, and highlights the higher status and a new identity now accorded to technology. He explores this new identity, its origins, its manifestations in classroom practice, and its possible futures. He pays particular attention to its role in the national curriculum, to assessment, to gender and race issues, and to management, and includes two entirely new chapters on the training of design and technology teachers and on design and technology in classroom practice.This best-selling book has been fully revised in the light of the new National Curriculum for Design and Technology which took effect in 2000 and will continue to be essential reading for all trainee and practising teachers of design and technology.
