Anderson, Sue; Farrell, Renee; Robbins, Susan; Simonson, Paula; Stanley, Melissa
Dance should be seen as an authentic avenue for allowing students to learn kinesthetically by using movement that is essential to brain development. Ideally students would be exposed to dance forms and patterns in other art forms like music and drama as well as units within physical education classes. These North Dakota standards may be taught concurrently with other disciplines, without sacrificing time, while energizing the curriculum. Standards for dance are: (1) Movement Elements; (2) Choreography; (3) Dance and Meaning; (4) Dance and Thinking Skills; (5) Dance, History, and Culture; (6) Dance and Personal Wellness; and (7) Dance and Other Disciplines. Includes benchmarks, specific knowledge, and sample activities for grades K-4, 5-8, and 9-12. Contains 13 references and a glossary. (BT)
