Education in the Arts: Teaching and Learning in the Contemporary Curriculum
Christine Sinclair, Neryl Jeanneret, John O'Toole
Oxford University Press, 2009 - Education - 284 pages
Education in the Arts: Principles and Practices for Teaching covers the teaching of visual art, drama, dance and music in primary and early childhood education, within the context of integrated creative arts education. It links theory and research to teaching practice, and allows teacher education students to apply what they have learned to new contexts. It encourages reflection upon teaching practice through real case studies, and provides direction for considering what it means to be an arts education teacher in a school, rather than an art, music or drama specialist. The text is a valuable resource for both students and teachers, with guidance on how to implement the various arts practices in a school setting.
