Content

This unit aims to broaden and deepen the student's knowledge of the theoretical and practical aspects of the role that music, dance and drama play in children’s development and learning. Students will explore and reflect upon the creative use of singing, dancing, playing, creating and moving, and develop repertoire appropriate for use in the classroom.  Students will examine and analyse aspects of what becoming arts literate means and the role that these art forms have in the Indigenous Australian and multicultural Australia and international contexts. Students will engage in activities and experiences that encourage and nurture them, so that they can in turn, nurture the musical, kinaesthetic and dramatic understandings and expressions in others.
