My students need a multicultural music and dance DVD and to help them understand the cultural expressions and belief systems of people from other parts of the world. They also need scarfs.
"Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, ... ~Friedrich Nietzsche I need to teach social studies, and they need to move. Teaching social studies through dance will help my students learn.
My students belong to a small historic plantation community.
They come from diverse ethic backgrounds. Our island is full of natural beauty and many of these students enjoy spending their free time at the beach surfing and boogie boarding. These students are active, and they need to get up and move frequently throughout the day. Therefore, my goal is to teach social studies concepts through music and dance.
Why are students bored in class? Why do we have students misbehaving in class? Too much sitting behind desks and listening to the teacher talk. We need to get students up and moving in activities that help them learn the content. These DVDs and CDs will help my class to learn about the celebrations of other cultures through music and dance. The dances are taught by expert instructors often a native of the country where the dance originates. Instructors give background information about the dance and wear traditional costumes. I believe my students are going to love learning these dances. The content can be used in social studies but also incorporates physical education and art.
Music, visual arts, and dance are essential elements in teaching children creativity.
Studies have shown that music and art help students in other subjects in school like science and math. In addition, dancing is a fitness activity that can be done throughout our lives. This project will help students by enhancing creativity, teaching them standards based content, and helping them to stay physically fit, all while having fun!Read More
