Choreography Variations Based on Observation and Feedback

Choreography Variations Based on Observation and Feedback

Following a peer critique, students will choose at least one piece of feedback to apply and rework in choreography.

This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.


These are analytic rubrics. The column on the left shows the dimension that is being measured in the student’s performance. The levels across the top row indicate the performance level in the dimensions. Occasionally all dimensions and performance levels are exemplified by multiple students in a single recording.
