Memorize and Reproduce Movement Sequences

Memorize and Reproduce Movement Sequences

Students will learn a 16- to 32-count combination in a style decided on by the teacher, aligned with curriculum. The combination will use steps previously taught to the students. Then, students will learn 16 to 32 additional counts of steps they know to be added to the combination. Students will practice and perform the combination with a small group. The performance will be recorded and evaluated by the teacher, by a peer, and by the student. The student’s ability to memorize and reproduce the combination will be evaluated. A shorter movement phrase might be used with sixth and seventh graders.

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.
