Week 9

You will again be provided an opportunity in this weeks lecture to participate in the PRO-Teaching (Peer Observation of Teaching) project. The project is looking at additional ways of supporting university staff in providing you with great learning experiences, two observers will join us to observe the lecture  and you will be asked to again complete a short survey at the end of the lecture.

In your view, would the disk stacker be a suitable technology task for primary school children? Explain. Can you think of a community project that you could do?

ACTIVITY T10.2    Behaviour Traffic Light

View the following presentation "Behaviour traffic Light" and reflect on the story presented. Why is a project like this particularly suited for primary school children?


Tutorial 9

In your tutorial you will undertake a variety of Arts activities including:


Write an arts program for a selected class of children that includes discrete developmental learning activities and outcomes for each art form  and that integrates across the arts and with at least one other key learning area. 


Analyse what Multiple Intelligences have been included, what Productive Pedagogies are involved and what generic skills are being developed throughout the program. 

Select one of the example programs and adapt the ideas to suit a selected class, based on their previous experiences and abilities, skills and understandings within each art form.
