|Subject Overview:||This subject synthesises teacher candidate’s broad (and developing) understanding of Visual Art curriculum with the realities of what they see happening in schools. Teacher candidates will explore how the secondary school student develops academic and social knowledge values and beliefs through visual art practice. Through the design and implementation of a “curriculum project”, teacher candidates will examine the role of the art teacher and her/his curriculum in this process. This is done through a praxis model. In-depth discussion of professional literature and analysis of practicum experiences will allow teacher candidates to re-examine their personal epistemologies, and re-articulate their concepts of pedagogy. A “curriculum project” will require teacher candidates to explore these findings in a school setting, through a self-designed strategy. A practical exercise will explore specialised VCE strategies|
|Assessment:||There are 2 assessment tasks: A curriculum project with written report and presentation (equivalent to 2800 words) due late semester (70%) On-line submissions (equivalent to 1200 words) due mid-semester (30%).|
