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 journalArticlespeer-review

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.
