Abstract

This paper takes the case of England over the twenty years 1984 to 2004 and explores the relationships between the two linked, but separate, school subjects of science and technology. Using a framework of analysis, we consider three inter-related strands: the curriculum rationale (focusing on the specified curriculum); teacher knowledge (focusing on the enacted curriculum); and pupil learning (focusing on the experienced curriculum). We consider the strands as they apply to each subject separately and also in relation to each other and, for each strand, attempt to draw lessons that can be learned and applied to other national contexts.
