Summary note:
"Using Movement to Teach Academics will help teachers teach curriculum by using movement and dance, while giving their students a chance to develop creative problem-solving skills. It describes a step-by-step process through which teachers and students can learn to transform academic concepts into actions and dances. Theoretical information is also included to demonstrate how movement-based teaching strategies connect with popular education theories such as cooperative learning, the multiple intelligences, brain-based learning, learning styles, and the zone of proximal development. Examples of movement-based lessons appropriate for elementary and middle school students are described, along with a glossary that defines movement-related terms. The book contains more than 80 photos and drawings that illustrate the text."--Jacket.
