Content

The focus on music and visual art curriculum, introduces students to aspects of the theory and practice of arts education in primary schools. This includes engagement with the Victorian Essential Learning Standards. Throughout the unit students are encouraged to develop personal discipline based skills in arts practice and responding to the arts (aesthetics, criticism and contexts) together with insights into the processes unique to each of these arts experiences. Students engage in critical discourse relating to the development and implementation of curricula for music and art in primary classrooms. Linked to these processes is the planning and implementation of effective assessment and evaluation criteria. During the trimester students will use information and communication technologies (ICT) as both a teaching and resource tool, complementing more traditional methods of arts engagement in the classroom.

Assignment one: Music Curriculum Unit - Written paper (minimum 2000 words, 50%)
