If you scroll down to 'Information about your subject specialism'
you'll see there are four tasks to complete:
The pre-course introductory reading task is one all PGCE students do, regardless of subject specialism. You're asked to read the two chapters provided and complete a piece of writing entitled 'How can the main aims of the secondary curriculum be met through the teaching and learning in your subject?' This writing won't be assessed (you can't fail the task!) However you will receive feedback and hopefully you will find it a useful 'way in' to writing
The introduction to the task invites you to refer to a third, subject-specific reading: Your Subject tutor will also suggest one relevant subject-based reading that might be useful for you to use for this task. This reading will help you to make useful connections with the pre course reading and task, and your first assignment, later on. For this you should read Section One of the Hickman book (left)
Try to focus on what you find most interesting about the writing, rather than worry about anything you don’t understand. The authors are writing generally about secondary education rather than specifically about certain subjects.Towards the end of the essay you can start to think about how this relates specifically to art and design. This could help you to conclude by writing a paragraph or two about how the aims of the secondary curriculum can be met through teaching and learning in art
