Motivating Students Through Dance
The motivation [for students to write about what they learn]
is built in, because the students get to do what theyre writing
about, notes Scott Pivnik. Dance provides other motivations as
well, he adds:
- The nice thing about dance is that it is nonconfrontational
and completely cooperative. You learn how to work together as a group
to make a final product, and everybody has to participate in order
for it to look good.
- Some people are going to look at this whole thing and say,
How do you know this is working? You just have to come
in and look at it. Theres a level of self-confidence that develops,
a level of poise that comes from this. Deep down inside its:
Wow, I can do this.
