Teacher Training Resource

Architecture Resource | Architecture + Design Scotland

Dress for the Weather alongside Stone Opera were commissioned by Architecture + Design Scotland to plan and deliver two teacher training CPD courses for Primary and Secondary School teachers.

The first of these courses used the school environment as a subject and introduced lessons in architecture and design which encouraged teachers and pupils to explore their existing school environment before building skills in design and making to create their own ideal model school.

The second course designed for both upper primary and secondary school teachers focussed on the High Street as a subject and creates a truly cross-curricular learning experience. Both courses were referenced to Curriculum for Excellence and give guidance to teachers on how to assess learning outcomes.

Dress for the Weather and Stone Opera delivered the CPD course to a number of schools in West and Central Scotland, more information can be found at:
