Description of the experience, supported by visual evidence of your personal engagement
Feelings and thoughts about the experience
Evaluation of the experience, including what you enjoyed or found challenging.
Analysis to make sense of the experience, considering your own experience in light of the theory you have encountered through the course content.
Conclusion about what you learned about that art form, and what you could have done differently, including what professional learning you could engage in to enhance your skills and understanding
Action plan (this is completed for Part B for one art form only).
A much more comprehensive breakdown of each section is provided in the submission template and you should consult this for specific guidance.
Throughout your reflections, you should support your discussion with reference to the course readings and textbook.
Part B – Classroom application (600 words)
The final step of the Gibbs reflective cycle is an action plan. Based upon what you have learned, how will you apply this in future? You will therefore apply your learning from Part A in a plan for a classroom context.
Select one* of the Practical Learning Activities from Part A and present a brief outline using the template provided to demonstrate how you would implement this arts experience (or a very similar arts task) in a classroom for a specific year level. You will need to:
select a relevant content description from the Australian Curriculum: The Arts to guide your classroom learning experience,
clearly explain how you would engage students with the identified knowledge and/or skills in your selected content description, and how your planned learning is authentic;
highlight strategies you would use to support inclusive student participation and engagement; and
Justify your chosen approach throughout with reference to course readings and wider academic research explaining how your pedagogical decisions help students to develop an authentic understanding of that art form and participate in an inclusive classroom.
Be sure to read the marking criteria (see end of this document) to see what markers will be looking for when evaluating your work.
