SCARFF and SHIELD, 1995. Making it fit: a report of a survey into the structure of technology departments in secondary schools in the north-east of England. IDATER 1995 Conference, Loughborough: Loughborough University
This paper looks at the changes implicit in the inclusion of Technology as a new subject in the National Curriculum. It uses data from a survey of secondary schools in north-east England to discuss how pre-existing methods of curriculum organisation and interpersonal relationships have affected the implementation of the new curriculum and the extent to which these variables impinge on the shape of the Technology curriculum at key stage 3 and 4 in individual schools.
