The arts are full of learning opportunities. Artful learning is the best way to approach teaching and learning. Listen to/view lectures, explore lessons, add your artful ideas to teaching arts in the senior years (high school), and add your own imagination to the artful world of teaching. This blog is "in progress" for a course about Arts Education in the Senior Years (High School).
The Dance, Drama, Music, and Visual Arts curriculum frameworks and implementation resources are intended to support, promote and inspire the growth of all students as artistic learners as they journey towards becoming creative, artistically literate “adults and citizens who will truly enrich their own lives and the lives of future communities” (Manitoba Education, 2011, p. 10).
