This book combines a number of important purposes. To provide students with:
    an understanding of the place of the arts in society and in schools an introduction to the basic principles of each art form and how to teach it vivid pictures of how the arts actually work in real classroom situations, through case study examples suggestions for how to build and adapt on the case study examples in your own primary classrooms, and perhaps most important of all; the confidence to bring the arts into the classroom.
Grounded in theory and research, with links to teaching practice, Education in the Arts helps students apply what they are learning to new contexts, and encourages them to become reflective and mindful 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.
