Katie Butler, Dance, South Charlotte Middle

Curriculum Unit (pdf)


This unit focuses on the integration of rhetoric into the dance curriculum. Movement fosters retention of new material and is a perfect medium for kinesthetic learning. Students will learn about the foundations of rhetoric and use that knowledge to create a dance that has meaning. They will participate in various activities that expand their knowledge of both dance and rhetoric. As a culminating activity in this unit, students will create a dance solo using given criteria.
