Summary "In this updated third edition, respected authors Purcell Cone and Cone identify how dance experiences assist children in cultivating 21st-century skills of creative thinking, collaboration, communication, global awareness, and self-direction. The authors present dance as a mode of learning that involves the whole child, using the body and the senses to gather information, communicate, and demonstrate conceptual understandings. Teaching Children Dance presents the fundamentals of program construction and delivery, guidelines on tailoring a dance program to fit various teaching situations, and advocacy strategies for maintaining and developing a program. Sample unit plans as well as ideas for planning yearlong unit plans and lesson outlines are included. Readers will find protocols for maintaining a safe and productive learning environment as well as strategies for encouraging students' feedback, demonstrations, and observations. Teaching Children Dance presents 31 challenging and enjoyable dance experiences. These ready-to-use learning experiences are divided into 12 activities for children in kindergarten through second grade and 11 activities appropriate for students in third through fifth grade. Eight dance experiences designed for inclusive or self-contained dance classes are also detailed along with strategies to ensure successful experiences for children with disabilities."--Publisher
