Dance Integration is an exploration of arts integration into core academic subjects through use of the creative process as a method for developing movement, dance phrases, dances, and entire units of study. This course helps dance educators (teaching artists, K-12 educators, studio teachers, instructors at company schools, university professors along with their pre-service student teachers) integrate dance across the curriculum through: understanding the creative process (from concept, investigation and exploration through selection, development, refinement and exhibition); creating dance making activities and lessons; designing and assessing integrated projects; understanding the use of different teaching styles, and selecting and adding appropriate national, state, or local standards, and applicable 21st Century Learning Skills. The content of this course is also useful for teacher preparation programs and professional development (for dance and non-dance educators).
Book required: Dance About Anything by Susan McGreevy-Nichols, Marty Sprague, and Helene Scheff (exerpts provided in the course modules).
