PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

So You Think You Can (Teach the Elements Of) Dance

The problem with teaching dance within the school system is that most teachers being asked to teach it have little or no prior knowledge in the subject.

This unit was written by a former competitive dancer, and put together so that those teachers without a dance background can still teach a quality unit and meet curriculum expectations. It uses YouTube videos to provide a large quantity of samples of different styles of dance, and then provides questionning guides as well as journalling to guide students towards meaningful analysis. This unit does rely on video heavily, so you will need to have access to a smartboard, projector, or smart TV in order to watch them with your class.

Each lesson focuses on one of the six elements of dance, and features a specific dance style. The lessons include discussion questions, journaling worksheets, and a link to a video that teaches a basic element of that style, so that you can learn right alongside your students.

To make the lessons as excessible and as high interest to students as possible, I have used clips from the “So You Think You Can Dance” television show. As these videos display dance in a manner that is current and recognizable, it should help students to “buy in” more easily.
