Pre-service teachers' critical reflections of arts and education discourse: Reconstructions of experiences in early childhood and higher education
Miller, Melinda G., Nicholas, Ellen L., & Lambeth, Meaghan L. (2008) Pre-service teachers' critical reflections of arts and education discourse: Reconstructions of experiences in early childhood and higher education. Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 9(4), pp. 354-364.
This layered account of arts education is produced through the three authors' critical reflections of experiences in their own early childhood education, and their pre-service teacher education. The first layer establishes links between the arts, learning in the arts and critically reflective practices through an account of teaching and learning in Unit X - a compulsory arts unit in a four-year teacher education course. The second layer is a recall of early childhood arts experiences and how these informed our identities as artists, students of the arts and critically reflective teachers. Possibilities for promoting critically reflective practices in teacher education are recommended, alongside a call for more systematic modes of reflective inquiry in a teacher degree program.
