Teachers know their students and they know how to teach them. So, is a curriculum necessary? This presentation looks at curriculum as a planning tool that can be used in many different contexts and for many different purposes, including classroom and instrumental teaching. Using Australian Curriculum: The Arts - Music as a model, participants will explore the flexibility that a curriculum can offer for planning learning that delivers on the essentials and differentiates learning to meet students’ diverse needs. Participants will be encouraged to think about how their teaching practice uses key ideas from the curriculum and how they balance and integrate the different components of music learning.
