Publisher Description

It's Arts Play: Belonging, Being and Becoming through the Arts introduces undergraduate students to Arts education for Early Childhood (birth to 8 years) via the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), which offers a holistic concept of children's learning, framed around the themes of Belonging, Being and Becoming. The text covers all five subjects identified as part of The Arts in the Australian Curriculum (dance, drama, media arts, music and visual arts). While the integral importance of the arts in early childhood is generally accepted, the nature of authentic arts education practice in this sphere is not well understood. This text offers well-focused, comprehensive and sound practical guidance for students. It promotes a play-based approach, and emphasises learning through the Arts and engagement in the Arts as congruent with the developmental model of children's learning, as characterised by the EYLF. A distinctive feature of this text is the incorporation of authentic Indigenous Perspectives embedded throughout.

In Part Three, practical guides to pedagogy, planning, monitoring, documenting and assessing learning, assist pre-service and novice educators navigate their professional responsibilities in regard to these dimensions of educational practice.Key FeaturesPause and Reflect scenarios and questions throughout are opportunities for pre-service teachers to consider real-life examples of these ideas.Clearly links authentic Arts practice to current educational policy frameworks including the ELYF and Australian Curriculum.Sparkers in Part 2 offer ideas to get you started in each Arts area, and help steer new teachers towards authentic educational practices.Incorporates authentic Indigenous voices that offer valuable insights for pre-service teachers.Summarises important "Things to Remember" as a handy reminder check-list for students and educators.*Please note the online resources referred to in the video are a list of related web links included in the content of the book
