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. The unit involves experimenting and engaging with the body, sounds, spaces, objects and ideas, exploring the elements and discovering why and how creative arts work in the world. They will experience and analyse the cognitive function of the arts in that they show us things in new ways, deepening and or changing our existing understandings.  They will examine and analyse the way in which music, dance and drama also offer the means for helping children to understand and consolidate what they learn. 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.
