Poetry in Movement
Movement engages students in active learning! Movement and creative dance provide an opportunity to reach kinesthetic learners in a way that allows them to process and retain information efficiently. Join dance teaching artist Kimberli Boyd to explore warm-ups, creative movement learning activities, and simple structures for composing dances that involve students in active learning.
Whether your students are learning a new language, building a bolder vocabulary or discovering more dynamic descriptive word choices, movement provides an active approach to understanding nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, simile, and metaphor. This interactive and participatory workshop will share strategies that integrate best practices in teaching with elements and principles of dance. The result is a simple yet highly effective approach to enhancing student engagement, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and much more.
