In recent years there has been a rapid growth in biotechnology and in its importance in the school curriculum. This handbook offers teachers an overview of the significance and scope of biotechnology and aims to be an introduction to the content of biotechnology and its relevance to the everyday world. It is also a guide to how biotechnology fits into the National Curriculum, within and across subject disciplines. The book contains appropriate teaching strategies, suggestions for practical work and case studies and other material which can be used directly with sixth form students. The text covers safety issues and will be a useful resource for practising and trainee teachers of science and technology.
