Lesson Plan

Exploring Movement Through Poetry:

In this resource, students will explore a poem by T. S. Eliot and, after close reading experiences, use it as a source of inspiration for creating original movement sequences. The elements of dance are manipulated as students explore various ways to create movement that reflects specific characters, behaviors, and themes. The integration of dance, reading, and writing provides multiple modes of learning, which helps students apply deeper meaning to new information.
