Dance Teaching Methods and Curriculum Design presents a conceptual model of dance education that embraces dance as an art form and disseminates it through learning experiences in dancing, dance making, and dance appreciation. Through this book, dance educators will broaden their understanding of the dance content that is appropriate for their students and their educational setting.
Part I presents an overview of the teaching and learning process in dance, including the background information necessary to plan, organize, set up, and deliver an effective learning experience. Part II offers ideas for unit and curriculum development, design, and evaluation.
Dance Teaching Methods and Curriculum Design provides a sound foundation in the art and science of dance pedagogy–for those who seek a rewarding career in teaching dance.
