Creative Dance Integration Lesson Plans

BYU Student Honors Thesis Project

by Erika Cravath

"Two years ago, I worked with a fifth-grade teacher who was terrified of dance and everything that related to dance. She did not know how to start using dance in the classroom. However, after team teaching a few lessons with me, she was ready to teach dance on her own. She later wrote, 'As a grade level we rotate and teach the other classes our science lessons. I have enjoyed incorporating some of the things Erika taught my class. It has helped me to become a better teacher.' My goal for this book is to help you to become a more diverse, student-centered teacher, helping students of all learning styles to learn."
