Look Both Ways

Look Both Ways

Students will be taught a head isolation pattern and will then perform the pattern with three variations—while stationary, with non-locomotor (axial or stationary) movements, and with locomotor movements. The teacher will score each student using the provided checklist, based on the ability of the student to perform the variations with spatial awareness, musicality, and accuracy.

This item has not yet been field-tested.


This is an analytic rubric. 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.
