Gattenhof, Sandra (2014) Arts Subject Area Syllabuses – Literature Review. . (Unpublished)


The following document is a discussion of the key factors and ideas that need to be taken into consideration in the reworking of Arts Subject Area Syllabuses (SAS). The review consists of short summaries of key academic texts, reports and policy documents that may be useful in the rethinking of the subject offerings under the banner of the Arts. The concentration of citations included in this literature review is situated in the last fourteen years of investigation into arts and education from the years 2000 to 2014.

The review begins with a summary of key considerations arising from the literature that may be taken into account when redeveloping SAS syllabi in the arts subject areas. Immediately following the summary is the review of literature captured under the following headings – role of the arts in educational contexts, arts engagement, learners & achievement, content, teaching and learning approaches, skills for the 21st century workforce, national and international syllabus directions.
