Alice Waddington's insight:

I chose to scoop up this short article not because it has tips and tricks for teaching using the creative arts, but because it talks about the threat to arts education that NAPLAN poses.  The article talks about the importance of the arts "the arts are as old as human civilisation and they enrich our lives in a myriad of ways."

Alice Waddington's insight:

This fantastic site is a hub for all things education through the creative arts.  It has links to appropriate websites along with resources and advice.  The site breaks up the creative arts into its four strands: drama, dance, music and art & gives specific information and links for each strand.  The information is stage specific as well which makes it very teacher friendly.  This site could be used as a great guide for teachers.

Play Therapy - An information resource for play and creative arts therapies

An information resource provided by Play Therapy Australasia – the foremost international organisation for play therapy, therapeutic play, filial play
Alice Waddington's insight:

This is about a book on drama therapy.  It is argued that many aspects of drama therapy make it an ideal technique to use with students with special learning needs.  The book covers a broad spectrum of students attending special needs schools, including those with ADD, autism, asperger syndrome and students with multiple disabilities.  I think it is important for all teachers to have some comprehension about how they can teach students with special needs.

Alice Waddington's insight:

I think this one really speaks for itself, it is the old NSW creative arts syllabus.  Regardless of the fact that it will be soon out of date it has fantastic resources and ideas that all teachers should refer to (even while working with the Aust Cur.)  There are ideas for cross curricular activities but mainly it can be used as a spring board for all sorts of different activities for all KLAs.
