This course will provide students with an introduction to a broad range of curriculum areas important to elementary education. These areas include Health and Physical Education curriculum (movement competence strand), the Arts curriculum (music, drama, visual arts, dance), as well as the integration of these domains with other elements of the elementary curriculum. Students will have the opportunity to examine issues related to diversity and equity as well as the application of technology within these curriculum domains. The course will discuss how to design and implement instruction in these areas that is consistent with the learning expectations in the Ontario Curriculum (early childhood, primary, and junior years).
