The Real Dance Revolution: How to Make Dance Meaningful for All Students
Zavatto, Laura; Gabbei, Ritchie
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v21 n5 p25-28 May-Jun 2008
Motivating students to achieve learning goals in physical education is a challenge for physical education teachers. Dance, in particular, has long been considered an instructional unit in which it is difficult to motivate students. This article presents a practicing physical education teacher's reflection of her successful curricular reform and combines it with a discussion of the theoretical underpinnings of that success. What emerges is a good example of implementing theory into practice. (Contains 3 tables.)
