Teaching from the Outside, In: Finding Meaning in Movement
Ward-Hutchinson, Betsy
Journal of Dance Education, v9 n2 p52-60 2009
In this action research study, the author examines her teaching a unit of study focusing on the dance "Outside In," choreographed by Victoria Marks in 1994. Aided by an analysis of multiple forms of data collected from her high school dance students in response to the unit, the author identifies and then reflects upon two important themes, one related to body image of dancers and one dealing with meaning-making. Through her analysis and reflection, while in dialogue with voices from other scholars, she clarifies her value of critical and imaginative thinking and identifies ways she might further their development in the classroom.
