Enhance your students’ ability to read, write and comprehend nonfiction texts through dance! Three foundational movement concepts – shapes, gestures and phrases – are introduced to increase student engagement with a variety of texts. Each step of the ELA-dance integration process will be explored: interpreting nouns, verbs and adjectives through movement, pairing a text phrase with a movement phrase, and expressing the meaning behind a nonfiction passage through dance. This arts integration technique is both effective and joyful, allowing students to connect their mind and body in a structured environment. Teachers will leave this PD equipped with concrete activities and strategies for integrating movement into their daily classroom practices.
