Emphasis is placed on the application of learning theories to practical considerations of teaching, including motivation, learning sequence, student-teacher interaction, and classroom management. Developmental theories, like those of Piaget and Erikson, and current research in cognitive science, are explored with attention to selecting learning experiences in the music and art classrooms.
