Teaching Dance as Art in Education (TDAE) is a strong comprehensive foundations text for higher education and in-service teachers. Now seamlessly correlate the text’s key points with classroom practice. This super-bundle promotes the strongest conceptual-based curriculum and instruction for teacher preparation in dance education. The standards-aligned resources clarify the big ideas that drive the artistic processes of “creating” and “responding” for students in K-5, MS, and HS.
These combined resources deliver the 6DC model of educational dance in a three-dimensional, hands-on way for coherence in teaching and learning. All three kits emphasize two of the cornerstone chapters in Teaching Dance as Art in Education (“Creating and Composing” and “Analysis and Critique”). It is the inquiry-based resources that advance the chapters’ content in new and unforgettable ways. Users of TDAE miss part of its classroom impact without these strategic catalysts in these three kits.
For dance education professors, pre-service dance educators, graduate students, student teachers, teaching artists, dance company education directors, and other professionals who teach all grade levels between kindergarten and grade 12. Kits resources grow with students from elementary to high school.
