Content

This is a milestone unit providing preparation for teaching the Arts and Humanities in primary education with a focus on the cross-curriculum priority area of sustainability.

The unit considers teaching and learning in the humanities and about sustainability both in and through the arts: dance, drama, media arts, music and visual art. Through bringing together curriculum areas, with a collaborative inquiry approach and through making use of available technologies, the unit offers an additional focus on teacher wellbeing and sustainable teaching practices.

Students will engage in a series of practical arts activities involving creating, making and presenting, either on-campus or in Cloud mode. They will reflect on these activities as artist, audience, activist and teacher.

Students will demonstrate digital technology skills through designing and creating primary arts and humanities curriculum and teaching ideas based on resources beyond the classroom, including local human and physical resources, cultural institutions, and alternative places and spaces.
