Design and Technology is one of the newest subjects on the school curriculum, and one that continues to develop. Teaching Design and Technology in Secondary Schools: A Reader introduces and explores the issues entailed in the teaching and learning of this subject. The book 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.
