This book advocates art, craft and design as useful, critical, transforming, and therefore fundamental to a plural society. It assists students in transition from studio to classroom practice and provides support for mentors and tutors. It suggests strategies to motivate and engage pupils in making, discussing and evaluating visual and material culture. With reference to current debates Learning to Teach Art and Design in the Secondary School explores a range of approaches to teaching and learning; it raises issues, questions orthodoxies and identifies new directions. The chapters examine ways of learning, planning and resourcing, attitudes to making, historical and contextual studies and values and critical pedagogy.
