5.0 out of 5 stars Really good little book, 16 Dec. 2009
This review is from: The Sustainability Handbook for Design & Technology Teachers (Paperback)
For my job I support schools in tackling the purchasing and waste doorway of sustainable schools, and once you think more systemically you should realise that our 'waste' problem is really a problem of design.

This book is full of great ideas of how you can transform your design lesson planning to take into account a much greater sense of what a product is than what you see before your eyes. Where does it come from?, what is it made from?, who made it? ... what is the products story?
Useful both as an introduction to sustainable design for the teacher and as inspiration for lesson plans, i would recommend this book.

The only thing that i didn't like about this book was the venn diagrams in the introduction imply that the economy has an existence outside the environment(economy, environment and society are represented as three overlapping circles): i disagree with this representation: the economy should be represented as a subset of society and both of them as subsets of the enviroment( more like a target board), as we can have no economy without a planet to live on(i'm not up for living on a spaceship!).

Still a great book though.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any D & T Teacher, 7 Dec. 2010
This review is from: The Sustainability Handbook for Design & Technology Teachers (Paperback)
As a Design & Technology Teacher myself I was looking for ideas to help in delivering lessons on sustainability issues and resources to help make learning about this area more interesting for students.

I was recommended this book.

It has been an invaluable resource with its suggestions for activities on Sustainability in D&T.

As a result we are purchasing one for all staff in our department.
