Meaningful Movement: Bringing Text to Life through Creative Dance
Teaching Artist/Presenter: Randy Barron
For educators of grades 3-8
Maximum number of workshop participants: 30
With a new emphasis on informational text in many English Language Arts curricula, teachers are searching for ways to enliven their reading comprehension and writing strategies. In this practical, active workshop, participants learn how to build student understanding of the structure and function of the English language through creative movement and dance-based strategies. Teachers will leave the workshop with a set of step-by-step lessons that they can immediately apply to literary, procedural, and informational texts, to help students construct and demonstrate understanding of the text through creative dance. Randy Barron, choreographer, former professional dancer, and veteran Kennedy Center Teaching Artist, leads this engaging and briskly-paced exploration of arts integration in action.
