The DEAL project will be delivered across terms one, two and three in 2019.
Teachers will receive mentoring through collaborative consultation from professional teaching artists skilled at making work with and for children.
In 2019, DEAL offers practical and professional development for teachers in dance, drama or media arts. Each school can nominate two participating teachers who will focus on a single subject area in the arts (dance, drama and media arts). In subsequent years, visual arts will also be offered to participating schools.
Following a two day intensive in late term one, in term two, the teaching artists will guide teachers through a practical process of curriculum implementation, involving making and responding.
In term three, teachers will lead a creative project with their class, developed in collaboration with and supported by the appointed professional teaching artist.
If required, teaching artists could assist teachers to develop strategies to integrate the Arts Curriculum into other teaching areas and discuss improved delivery of General Capabilities in the Australian Curriculum, particularly in the area of Critical and Creative Thinking.
