This course uses an activity-based, project-driven approach to help you acquire new technical skills, create project resources, design curriculum documents, and develop the assessment and evaluation tools you will require to teach Grade 11 and Grade 12 Technological Design courses in your school. Technology education teachers encounter many variables in their classrooms and shops that differ from the regular classroom. For example, dealing with a multitude of tools and equipment can present safety issues unlike those of other classes. Safety issues arise as soon as students walk into the shop environment. Therefore a teacher’s approach to classroom management is critical. One of the major benefits of being a technology teacher is that students want to be in the course. Students typically comment "This is my favourite class," "I get to work with my hands," or "I get to build projects." What does this say about the curriculum teachers deliver? The curriculum should be hands-on, enjoyable, project-driven, and should meet the Ministry Expectations for Technological Education. The curriculum must meet all these criteria and more. For the teacher, the curriculum must be fluid. Therefore, the curricular units, activities, and lessons must be sequential. Assessment and evaluations should be honest and authentic for learning. Also it is necessary to address students' literacy and numeracy skills by integrating those skills into projects and activities. The objective of these modules is to help you design a curriculum to meet both your needs and those of your students. The curriculum design must consider the tools and resources available in each classroom and shop. A good curriculum is the best tool in the shop or classroom to keep students engaged, continuously learning new skills, and developing new ideas.
