The primary focus of this course is to enhance the knowledge of generalist primary teachers regarding the five arts forms of Dance, Drama, Media Arts, Music and Visual Arts, and builds upon the foundation knowledge they have already established. Utilising significant historical movements will provide important context for generalist primary teachers to see how the stories told through the Arts contribute to a larger story about humanity. Contemporary artworks are informed by historical events and in addition to enhancing content knowledge provide an important opportunity to enhance general capabilities such as critical and creative thinking. Through this course pre-service teachers will further develop their knowledge of how to integrate the making and responding strands within the Arts in ways that also acknowledge how they are informed by the social and cultural contexts of the artists who created them.
