I need to get back to addressing all the different learning styles. I remember having students understand our curriculum in science, "the birth and death of a star" through dance. They loved it. I had 4 students take it further and choreographed a presentation for the class with chiffon scarves that they used for movement and color. It was beautiful and a lot more interesting than a worksheet. They had all of the stages "down" through their dance interpretation. Thanks for the inspiration.
