Teach with confidence across all 5 art streams!

This book combines a number of important purposes. It aims to privide 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;
  • 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.

New to this Edition:

New Part Four – Arts and Community which includes new chapters:

  • Chapter 16 - What can mindful educators learn from artists who work with children?
  • Chapter 17 - The Arts and Teaching for Diversity.

New cases studies across the book, with accompanying ‘beyond the case study’ section:

  • Each chapter now includes one extended case study allowing for greater depth of description and analysis of the practice under review;
  • 'Beyond the case study’ draws out the strategies and approaches embedded in each case study and invites students and educators to explore how these can be applied in their own teaching contexts.
