|Subject Overview:||This subject develops teacher candidates’ understanding of the place of Visual Arts in contemporary schools in Australia. By considering the principles of learning and teaching that underpin effective classrooms and the research that supports these principles, this subject will widen teacher candidates’ appreciation of exemplary teaching in this area. This subject introduces teacher candidates to the core curriculum knowledge required to teach Visual Art in secondary schools. The principal curriculum models (VELS and VCE) are explored. The skills required to write lesson and unit plans for the art classroom are developed. Techniques for including “making” and “responding” approaches in the classroom are covered. Key theorists are studied as a means of rationalising individual epistemologies and pedagogies for teaching art. Teacher candidates are introduced to cognitive theories relevant to Visual Art education, methods for assessing art in the classroom, and practical teaching techniques for the art classroom|
