Subject Description

This subject introduces students to pedagogical theory and practices in the four diverse art forms of Dance, Drama, Music and Visual Arts in the primary classroom.

The subject provides practical knowledge, skills and understandings of the importance of all four art forms both as powerful teaching and learning strategies across the primary curriculum and as the creative arts in their own right for pre-service teachers.

You will build your capability to demonstrate creativity when teaching, empathy with diverse groups of student learners, a commitment to socially just schools and classrooms and an understanding of artistic processes. Similarly you will give students an understanding of the role of aesthetics, imagination and play in learning.
