100 ideas for teaching design and technology.

Spendlove, David.

Spendlove (education, University of Manchester, UK) draws on best practice in teaching and locates it within a design and technology (D&T) context in this collection of 100 ideas for teaching, learning, and assessing D&T in secondary schools. Each idea is presented in one page, with entries divided into eight sections. The first section addresses the rationale for teaching D&T, the place of D&T in the UK's National Curriculum, and the place of D&T in global education. Later sections cover designing, using technology, extending the curriculum, structuring learning, teaching different types of students and learners, and assessment. A final section looks at learning styles, involving parents, and encouraging self esteem. There is no subject index.
