This Visual Arts Part 1 AQ Course provides candidates with a theoretical and practical introduction to the teaching of visual arts at the elementary and secondary levels. The course focuses on lesson planning, sequential lesson development, and classroom implementation within a context of culturally relevant pedagogy.
