All students benefit from learning through multiple modalities – seeing, hearing, moving and interpersonal interaction. For English Language Learners (ELL) in particular, adding kinesthetic learning to the teaching environment opens a world of language learning opportunities. In this fascinating workshop, learn ways to guide movement explorations in which ELL students authentically interact with and internalize academic vocabulary across several content areas.
Location: Fox Cities Performing Arts Center
Learn how to help students express their poems through dance with an integrated approach to language arts. You will explore a variety of movement techniques that extend students’ range of movement choices to express their words. You will also examine ways to improve the quality of students’ dance interpretations by investigating a useful “drafting” and “editing” process.
Do students really understand how everything in math is a pattern? In this workshop, first discover how patterns form the fundamental building blocks of music, dance and mathematics. Then, learn to lead arts-integrated math lessons that unlock the number concepts embedded in patterns. Finally, explore how choreographers calculate and build movement patterns to fit the timing and structure of music. Integrating music and movement with math instruction helps students move past rote memorizing and toward conceptual thinking.
