Students will create a movement phrase that links to geometry core content and includes technical acuity and attention to space, time, and energy. This creation will take place over three class periods. Individually, each student will create a 24-count movement phrase followed by working in pairs to create a duet. The two phrases will then be combined back-to-back into one 48-count movement phrase.
Prior to this assessment, the teacher should address geometric concepts with students. Some ideas to include may be geometric definitions, visual representations, etc. to insure student understanding for further exploration and application. The teacher may also make the decision to reduce the number of items on the list of geometric concepts to meet the needs and learning styles of students (see Geometric Concept list below).
Performances will be recorded for teacher scoring.
This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.
