This 42 page package includes everything you need to teach your students about movement. This unit incorporates music as a vehicle to promote emotional and natural movement. Teens often have a great love for music, and so it seems logical to utilize something they already love and incorporate it into instruction of this topic. Students will explore music and movement together through a variety of activities, assignments and presentations.
The skills and objectives that will be met through this unit include:
• Ability to remain still
• How to respond to words and music with movement
• Communicate non-verbally
• Create physical shapes and expression in space
There is something about this final project that always produces an astounding result. This is an excellent project to present at a Remembrance Day or Veterans Day assembly, given that the music is suitable to the occasion. Enjoy the results; this unit will remind you why you teach!
This is a unit I have experience teaching successfully at the junior or senior high level. The activities and lessons are simple and easily understood. The unit covers basic movement terminology and practice. You don’t need to have a degree in Dramatic Education to teach this unit! You could print off this entire package and teach the first lesson today!
