In these lectures we present the motivation for dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking and its most popular realization, technicolor. We introduce the basic ideas of technicolor and its companion theory of flavor, extended technicolor. We review the classical theory of technicolor, based on naive scaling from quantum chromodynamics, and discuss the classical theory's fatal flaws. Finally, we describe the principal attempt to correct these flaws, the theory of walking technicolor.
