Movement & Music (K-5)

3 Credits
Explore the National Core Arts Standards as a guide to provide quality arts education in your classroom! Go beyond the surface of dance and music to teach your students grade-appropriate theory in this non-intimidating class! Utilizing the NCCAS's resources, videos, and lessons, you will know how to gauge proficiency in the Creating, Performing, Responding processes. After creating lesson plans for your grade level, you will learn how to incorporate the movement and music standards into your literature and history units! Participants will be required to record themselves and upload the video to the website. If students don't own a device, they will need to make arrangements to borrow one. Videos taken from iPhones, iPads or similar tablets are sufficient.

NOTE: Required textbook must be acquired separately.
