About this Unit
This unit is designed to develop pre-service teachers’ efficacy and identities in the content area of science and the arts. Building on the concepts of teaching-artists and scientist-as-teacher this unit gives future teachers agency to create innovative and transformative learning experiences for the primary classroom. In this unit students build on their content knowledge in science and the arts, as developed in the units Science and Technology in the Primary Years, and Creative Arts Education. They will develop science, performing arts (dance, drama and music), visual arts and media arts skills which can enhance their repertoire for the classroom. This unit will additionally explore the intersection of science and the arts, developing knowledge of creativity, aesthetics, innovation, artistic and scientific processes. It has been designed to give all students the opportunity to develop their knowledge, understanding, skills, confidence and competence in the science and the arts in discrete and integrated forms.
