Fifth-grade* students learn to classify, create, and replicate extended dance phrases and original and established compositions requiring concentration, strength, agility, creative risk-taking, use of technology, and knowledge of cultural tradition in at least two dance forms to cultivate a personal definition of and appreciation for dance. They develop reflective critical and creative-thinking skills to solve artistic problems in dance, make informed judgments about the significance of dance in various cultures, and learn how to critique dance performance constructively and with respect based on established and student-created criteria.
* Intermediate Dance 1, 2, and 3 have been designed in two ways: 1) to challenge students on grade level
who have previously taken classes in this content area; and 2) to challenge students whose education in this content area has been delayed until the upper elementary grades. Dance teachers of classes in Grades 3, 4, and 5 should select the most appropriate course level in the series based on each group's prior experience, the benchmarks, and available instruction time. Once elementary students have entered the series, they must progress to the next course in sequence. Examples: • A 3rd grade class that has taken Dance previously should be enrolled in Intermediate Dance 1 and progress through the series in subsequent grades. • 4th graders beginning formal instruction in Dance for the first time may be enrolled, as a class, in Intermediate Dance 1, and must then progress to Intermediate Dance 2 in the following year.
This class may include opportunities to participate in extra rehearsals and performances beyond the school day.
English Language Development ELD Standards Special Notes Section:
Teachers are required to provide listening, speaking, reading and writing instruction that allows English language learners (ELL) to communicate for social and instructional purposes within the school setting. For the given level of English language proficiency and with visual, graphic, or interactive support, students will interact with grade level words, expressions, sentences and discourse to process or produce language necessary for academic success. The ELD standard should specify a relevant content area concept or topic of study chosen by curriculum developers and teachers which maximizes an ELL’s need for communication and social skills.
