So, I have a question for anyone who sees this post. I am working on a new unit for TPT and since I work at an arts school and get to work with a dance, drama, visual arts and a music teacher on a regular basis these subjects have become integrated into my planning and instruction. I really had the vision to share these ideas when I started this blog but am stumped as to how to do this. I have these great ideas as how to incorporate music and dance into this ocean unit but am not sure how teachers will feel about trying out lessons where they choreograph simple dances if they can't see them in action. Also, I don't want to include an already choreographed dance because the true learning happens when students are involved in creating the movements to represent learning. So, I was wondering how other teachers would feel about this.I love trying new things but as an arts coach at my school, I know this is not true for everyone so let me know what you think.
Here's the question:
If you bought a unit packed with printables as well as ideas about how to use certain songs (song titles and artists included) along with dance ideas to teach/ reinforce a concept, would you try it? What would help you step out of your comfort zone? a video that showed an example of using the dance to teach a concept? Let me know what you think. Thanks!
