Dance: A Maryland Curricular Framework.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore.
The curricular framework set forth in this document is designed to assist administrators and teachers in planning, developing, and implementing K-12 dance programs. The publication is organized in five major sections: the first section presents a philosophy defining the nature of dance in relation to society, the learner, and the school curriculum; the second focuses on goals and subgoals representing broad statements of desired outcomes; the third provides further definition for each subgoal; the fourth offers illustrative objectives, showing how goals and subgoals may be treated at particular grade levels; and the final section describes how to develop and use goals, subgoals, expectancies, and objectives in the preparation of dance scopes, sequences, and instructional units. Appendices provide a sample set of illustrative objectives, the required Maryland competency objective, a glossary of dance education terms, the names of the Maryland Dance Curriculum Framework Task Force, and both the Maryland and the national review panels for the Maryland Dance Curricular Framework.
