Synopsis

Exploring Primary Design and Technology by Rob Johnsey

This helpful book clarifies ideas about one of the most important - and often undervalued - subjects in the primary school curriculum. It provides a crystal clear guide to what can be achieved in the classroom and uses case studies and detailed line drawings to illustrate many of the issues. The author includes a lively and up-to-date discussion of the nature of design and technology, based upon a great deak of his own research. The book breaks new ground by discussing in detail the procedural skills used in designing and making. It also suggests how these might be taught in a progressive way in the classroom. A major part of the book is devoted to the subject knowledge required to teach design and technology, together with an examination of the role of the subject co-ordinator and class teacher. Exploring Primary Design and Technology will provide an essential insight resource for practising and trainee teachers at primary level. Rob Johnsey is a Lecturer at Warwick University's Institute of Education.
