Description This unit will engage students in developing a critical appreciation for the role of the arts in their own right, in society and in the early years. They will develop appreciation for the relevance of the arts in in children's play and identity formation, and as meaning making and communication tools. Opportunities for creative thinking and creative expression will be explored first hand through introductory experiences and theory in the areas of drama, music, visual arts, dance and media arts. Students will consider how integration of art pedagogies can support rich and meaningful learning experiences, complex problem solving and meaning making in the early years.
