Creative Movement to Express Global Issues
Lesson Objective: Use dance and movement to express global issues
Grade 8 / Arts / Dance

Thought starters

  1. In what ways does freedom of expression empower students?
  2. What role does each activity (bodystorming, flocking, and teacher feedback) play in designing the final dance?
  3. How does the group structure during flocking help Ms. Charlebois differentiate for students?

I really enjoyed the video information regarding the new curriculum. Do you have any information on where the "Flocking" technique originated?

Check out the arts curriculum from the Ontario Ministry of Education website, as well as the supporting resources available on www.edugains.ca and the subject association for drama and dance, the Council of Ontario Drama and Dance Educators (CODE) at www.code.on.ca. Lots of resources there.

Hello Julie, I believe she is referring to Canada's Learning Through the Arts program. This is their website - http://resources.curriculum.org/arts/
