Students will be required to design and demonstrate lessons in aspects of art appreciation and art history at a range of levels in the secondary school.


This unit requires students to reflect on aspects of art history, theory and criticism in order to design teaching and learning experiences in art appreciation. Students will make a selection of art works as the basis for teaching in the secondary art curriculum, and design materials to resource their teaching. Students will be introduced to a range of teaching strategies and resources and encouraged to develop their own teaching style and philosophy.
