Using Movement to Teach Academics will help you teach your curriculum through the use of movement and dance, while giving your students a chance to use their creative problem-solving skills. This text describes a step-by-step process through which you and your students can learn to transform academic concepts into actions and dances. Examples of movement-based lessons appropriate for elementary and middle school students are described along with a glossary that defines movement related terms. The book contains 83 photos and drawings that illustrate the text. Theoretical information is also included to demonstrate how movement-based teaching strategies connect with popular education theories such as Cooperative Learning, the Multiple Intelligences, Brain-Based Learning, Learning Styles and the Zone of Proximal Development. Learn how movement-based instruction complements how the human brain learns, while reading some persuasive arguments for using movement as a teaching tool.
