About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. This unit 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 unit 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. This unit builds students’ capabilities 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. This unit will give students an understanding of the role of aesthetics, imagination and play in learning.
