This group project allows students to select specific dances that they are personally interested in. A list of dance types are provided for them to choose from.
The project consists of 2 parts:
Part 1 - Research a type of dance and create a presentation of findings for the class.
Part 2 - Teach the rest of the class how to do this specific dance.
Student outcomes and an assessment rubric are provided (designed specifically for SK grade 8 outcomes but adaptable for any other class).
This project is perfect for any teacher, but it especially works well for anyone that is reluctant in teaching dance because it allows the students to take responsibility for their own learning and makes it more relevant and enjoyable for the whole class.
