The approaches to teaching art practiced by secondary school art teachers in the context of Hong Kong: Necessary changes for reform

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Approaches to teaching art were studied through interviews with 18 art teachers at secondary schools in Hong Kong. Grounded analysis revealed that the approaches to teaching fitted into a four category model with category labels: instructional, discipline inquiry, social interactive, and personal. The categories were defined and described by six dimensional features: aim; content; role of teacher; role of student; teaching methods; and assessment orientation. The four categories of approaches to teaching could be placed under a higher-order spectrum between subject-and student-centred poles. Copyright © 2005 STAEDTLER Portuguesa, Lda.
