Publication Date 1 Dec 2011
OverviewEngage * Create * Reflect * Teach * Learn This is a book about the principles and practice that underpin teaching and learning in the arts. It enables primary school teachers to work across a number of art forms, including drama, art, music, media, technology and dance. It also addresses the need for all teachers to be able to teach the arts, not just art, music or drama specialists. It is grounded in theory and research, with links to teaching practice, allowing students to apply what they are learning to new contexts, and encouraging them to become reflective practitioners. Students can continue to use this book as they become practising teachers, drawing on how to implement the various arts practices in a school setting. New to this Edition 3 new chapters: Chapter 10.
