Developing Physical Literacy through Dance
Bring your P.E. program to life with dances that develop physical literacy and fundamental movements skills! Forget 5-6-7-8 or intimidating routines, learn simple moves from a variety of music styles – Hip Hop, Urban, Ballroom, Bollywood, Jazz/Funk and sports themes (basketball, volleyball, outdoor ed. and more!) Discover a new instructional style that fosters acceptance and diversity by building self-confidence, maximizing participation and promoting interACTIVE learning.
Teaching Dance for Understanding – Teaching Dance in PE
Teaching Dance for Understanding is a new pedagogical approach for dance education that shakes things up with dance the same way TGfU brought us a new way of teaching games in PE! Experience the 6 Phases of the TDfU framework and discover physically-active and culturally diverse lesson ideas to engage students with dance moves that are relevant, accessible and energizing. Access resources including video tutorials, choreography notes, lesson activities and assessment rubrics.
