Students will begin by listing 10 actions that they take in a day—step by step from the start to the end of their day. Then they will choose one of those steps from their list and create a 16- to 24-count movement showing gestures and emotions to represent that chosen step. A good video to show to the students prior to this assessment is David Parson’s “Sleep Study.” It is a part of the Behind the Scenes collection, available on Amazon.com.
The teacher may decide to have students create more or less movement, depending on the size and level of the class.
After students’ everyday movement phrases are created, students will alter tempo, level, or dynamics. Students will be video recorded and will reflect on the process.
