As an educator, you are vital to making a difference for all the students in your care. You will learn to support your students’ imaginations and creativity while fostering a safe space in your classroom that supports the artistic expression of all learners. This course examines curriculum integration, nature-inspired learning, cultural diversity, and the impact of historical and mythological tales on the modern-day experience.
As students move through the various stages of the expressive arts process, they engage in activities that match their strengths, such as music, dance, drama or fine art. These activities encourage student communication while developing cognitive abilities. The expressive arts help overcome language barriers and promote wellness for students, families and communities. As an educational leader, you will learn to use a preventative approach in supporting students, no matter their educational needs.
In this course, you’ll have the opportunity to
- recognize the need for the expressive arts and the connection to student learning
- examine how creating in the expressive arts embraces a range of activities including planning, drafting, devising, making, choreographing, shaping, composing and editing as well as performing, presenting, sharing, exhibiting and producing
- describe how exploration of the expressive arts deepens our artistic knowledge and contributes to our understanding of identities, cultures and societies
- implement and integrate the expressive arts with the BC Ministry core and curricular competencies
- access a variety of resources, including technological resources, within and beyond the educational system to support learning
- determine how the arts can be utilized as a vehicle for social and emotional learning
- provide examples of effective practices to identify, assess and support the mental health needs of students
- construct lesson plans that reflect SEL competencies taught through the arts
- explore creative works, knowing why they were created, and develop learners’ understanding of local, provincial, national and global matters
