Written as a guide to the National Curriculum requirements for Design & Technology, this book aims to help pupils to progress through Key Stage 3 and to ensure that they are well prepared for the start of their GCSE course. It explains what the subject is about and the areas of study involved, and gives an idea of the kind of work pupils are likely to be doing in Years 7, 8 and 9, depending on which areas their school offers. It then provides a check-list of the things pupils are expected to learn about during Key Stage 3, and finally explains the attainment targets and advises on what needs to be done for progression to the next level. Also included in an illustrated glossary of significant design-and-technology words.

Teaching Design and Technology in Secondary Schools begins by providing information on the nature, purpose and development of design and technology in schools. An aptitude for design and technology combines practical skills and theoretical knowledge, and the book addresses what this means in practice. Design and technology takes in work with such diversity as resistant materials, textiles, food and systems and control, so attention is given to connections between these areas and what makes them 'design and technology'. Together, these articles comprise a stimulating and comprehensive overview of the issues and ideas surrounding this new, popular and exciting element of the secondary school curriculum. This book is the companion to Aspects of Teaching Secondary Design and Technology.

Here is an increasingly wide agreement among teachers, researchers, inspectors, advisers and policy-makers that both teaching and research will benefit from being brought closer together. But how can this be achieved? Hard-pressed practitioners cannot be expected to review a constant flow of conference papers, journals and other publications, even if such items were accessible and clearly understood. This unique book synthesizes relevant research findings for the professional practitioner and highlights their implications for the quality of teaching and learning. Whether you are a teacher looking to improve your practice through applying the latest thinking in your subject, or a researcher looking for a concise review of the literature, this book will prove to be a valuable acquisition.

Ofsted continues to identify weaknesses in this subject, while many primary, non-specialist trainees lack confidence in the area. Linked to the new (2007) Standards for QTS and the DATA Tier 1 competencies, this book is for trainees who have had less than 20 hours training in design and technology but are required to teach the subject during school placements and once qualified. This clear, jargon-free text explains the key concepts and curriculum requirements, without assuming prior expertise or advanced levels of understanding, making this book a sound basic introduction.
