Curriculum Approach for Craft & Technology
Curriculum is designed along inquiry-based approach to increase intellectual engagement
and foster deep understanding through authentic and meaningful tasks, and research-based disposition towards teaching and learning.
This is to supplement the interconnected nature of knowledge construction, striving to
provide opportunities for both teachers and students to collaboratively build, test and
reflect on their learning.
Inquiry-Based Learning is introduced in lessons and in the process of making, which makes
students’ learning experiences relevant and in alignment to 21CC through:
- developing competencies in the respective crafts through foundational knowledge, skills, and application in the craftwork/artefact and skills at lower secondary level;
- use critical thinking and to synthesize the knowledge and skills gain through process thinking skills at upper secondary level;
- enable pupils to experience the personal satisfaction and enjoyment in successfully completing tasks while enhancing their awareness of, and respect for, the values, attitudes and contributions of others through experiential and authentic learning, in tandem with Collaborative Learning and Self-Directed Learning;
- use of Art Inquiry Model to for Inquiry-based Art Lesson Design and Design Thinking processes for D&T and F&N lesson design; and
