Reviews and tips for ECH131

This unit was a lot of fun but surprisingly quite a bit of work as you had to prepare a 300 word provocatation each week, which was fine but over all you complete 6 of them which total up to 60% of your marks and we were quite harshly marked on a few of them so you need to put a lot of effort in otherwise you fall behind!

Very enjoyable. Stay on top of the provocations, they are a big part of the subject. :)

Pros: It was so fun to do. The workshops (tutorials) were interactive, engaging, and very relevant to early childhood practitioners! Even people who "can't draw" or "can't sing" will find their inner artistic side. No pressure in the tutorials makes it a great learning experience! Cons: Quite hard to get good grades. The grading style does not reflect the different method of learning for students that they preach about. It is very theoretical and academic (as usual with university subjects) but this means that the practical tutorials do not prepare you that well for these. The markings were strict and the workload intense (6 x 250 word discussions. Just because they are short does not mean you can treat it lightly. They expect your regular essay quality, but you have to do new research for each. Exhausted by the end of it).

As the other reviews have noted, the provocations are a major component of this subject and still require extensive reading and the best 250 words you can write. In addition, your provocations are posted publicly to everyone in your tute group. You're expected to comment on previous posts and 'progress' the dialogue about each topic.(Be prepared to delve into your own past experiences of art!). I was thoroughly challenged on my view of the arts throughout the topic. I confess I started with a very low opinion of the value of arts as an educational tool. Now that I've finished I've become a huge advocate of the arts not just in early childhood but as a teaching method for all ages. There's a very strong focus on understanding the role of the teacher in teaching foundational skills in the various art forms. It's very different to the schooling I received (late 70s/early 80s), and wonderfully liberating and refreshing. I was surprised at the benefits of the arts across various curriculum.
