Now that students have created their movement piece about their hero, have them present to each other. To further advance the meaning, have students bring in an artifact that represents their hero (like a picture or an object). Students will lean towards people that are not living. Express to them the hero can still be living AND the dances can be happy! Whatever the hero or dance, the purpose is to convey meaning!! Use the peer evaluation as a tool to edit and re-edit the dances. Once this has taken place, record the dances and have students do a self evaluation:
Did the piece convey the intended meaning? Was the movement story clear?
Have fun & be creative!!!
