Moving from Concept to Choreography: Harnessing the Movement Potential of Any Lesson
In this workshop, developed for kindergarten and first grade teachers, participants will experience the power of using movement to engage student learning and creativity across the curriculum. Discover how movement makes abstract concepts concrete and deepens children’s learning, and ability to acquire new vocabulary. Choreography creates non-verbal opportunities for children to demonstrate what they know through dance. Using movement and choreography, participants will learn how to identify, organize, and facilitate the potential for authentic child engagement and assessment.
