Roy, D and Baker, WJ and Hamilton, A, Teaching the Arts: Early Childhood and Primary Education, Cambridge University Press, Port Melbourne, Australia, pp. 264. ISBN 9781107636200 (2012) [Authored Other Book]


Teaching the Arts: Early Childhood and Primary Education provides a comprehensive and exciting introduction to Arts education in Australia and New Zealand. By illustrating the fundamental links between theory and practice, this book equips students with the skills and knowledge to teach the Arts. The book covers each of the five Arts strands –dance, drama, media arts, music and visual arts – in detail. Each chapter encourages readers to engage with the Arts and provides opportunities to develop understanding and practical skills through reflective questions, examples and activities. Teaching the Arts draws important links to the Australian Curriculum, the New Zealand Curriculum, the Early Years Learning Framework and TeWhariki, and includes substantial references to Indigenous histories and cultures, relationships with Asia and sustainability. Generously illustrated and featuring excellent on-line resources, Teaching the Arts is an indispensable resource for pre-service teachers
