Improve Academic Achievement
Studies show there is a strong relationship between arts and academic achievement. This text helps P.E. PE teachers that aren’t as familiar with dance still be successful at teaching a unit, giving students a new way to exercise their brains and improve their overall performance in class.
All You Need to Begin
The book was written by Judi Fey with the idea of making an instructional book ideal for teachers without dance training. The book takes a student-directed approach, allowing them to create their own projects. Included is everything you need to facilitate dance units, including teachers’ scripts, strategies for facilitating dance, a DVD with 77 reproducibles and video demonstrations for all skills, a music CD that gives you plenty of appropriate accompanying music, and three 3 complete dance units for grades 6 through 8. Each unit includes eight 8 or nine 9 age-appropriate lessons, rubrics, objectives, warm-ups, information on physical and cognitive development, and scripted lesson plans.
This book features 3 units, each of which contains a variety of lessons.
