Racheal Lissaman a student teacher at St. John Moores University in Liverpool asked us if she could do her research project entitled “Does providing support enhance teachers’ confidence towards planning and teaching dance at Key Stage Two? using our resources as a support system for her participating teachers. We immediately agreed as its valuable feedback from a completely independent reviewer. Here’s what they said…
“The planning was very detailed and easy to follow. The videos showed demonstrations of moves you may not be aware of and really easy to follow. The children loved the sessions, especially the boys. They really responded well to the combat” - A primary school teacher taking part in the case study
“I found the imovesdance.com resources and lesson plans extremely up to date, offering a wide variety of activities exploring creative movement and dance. The resources were very simple to understand and the layout was clear. The resources and activities were exceptionally enjoyable to deliver, and the participants were also having a lot of fun. Overall, imovesdance.com resources were fun, easy to use and imaginative. They are a great way to introduce and maintain dance in schools” – Rachael Lissaman, PE & Dance – Liverpool John Moores Uni
The full report is very interesting as it looks at the barriers to teaching dance in primary schools and offers sound and impartial solutions to overcome these barriers.
May I take this opportunity to thank Rachael and the teachers who participated in this study and hope that their future experiences teaching dance are good ones.
Bye for now Imogen
