Learn how to implement dance standards, and implement success. Having a set of standards is critical. But standards alone do not ensure success. That's where Implementing the National Dance Education Standards comes in. This book will help you apply the standards to motivate students through engaging experiences that make dance education come alive. You'll learn about the relationship between learners' developmental characteristics and benchmarks, and you'll explore the impact that various teaching and curriculum environments have on learning. You'll also delve into how to design, plan and implement a standards-based dance curriculum; how to assess students' progress; and how to make technology choices that strengthen the curriculum and challenge students' learning processes. Each chapter includes overviews and summaries to help you focus on the key points. A glossary defines dance and educational terms, and references provide additional sources of information for you to consider. Please note: the National Standards are American standards. However, for those countries without such guidelines, this book might be useful in creating standards and implementing dance curricula.
