primary subject leader - advice please

Discussion in 'Design and technology' started by Bee06, Dec 21, 2011.

  1. Hello there,
    I've just taken over DT at my school and I'm looking for advice. I don't know much about the subject and the previous subject leaders didn't do anything. However, I'm excited about learning and am really looking forward to making the subject more rigorous. At the moment the subject is like glorified junk modelling so I have some questions
    1. What should primary children come to secondary knowing how to do?
    2. In particular, what are the important skills in each of the different dt areas.
    3. What would you do first in my situation?

    From doing research online, I think I'll join DATA and there are a couple of books I might buy too.

    Thanks B
  2. Hmm, paragraph breaks obviously don't work when posting with my phone. Sorry.
