Creative Dance for All Ages

"Outlines lesson planning with multiple suggestions for teching each dance element. A classic! Approachable for dance teachers as well as classroom teachers."
Teaching Dance As Art in Education
Teaching Dance As Art in Education
"Arranged as a textbook for undergraduates in a dance teacher education program, this new book gives a comprehensive overview of many facets of teaching dance in a K12 public school setting. One drawback is the heavy use of author-coined terminology and acronyms, which is confusing if you read selected chapters rather than going straight through. Still, a fabulous resource!"

Interdisciplinary Learning Through Dance:101 Moventures
Interdisciplinary Learning Through Dance:101 Moventures
"Good for lesson ideas, but the lesson plans need more work if you are going to truly teach in an arts-integrated manner. Can be useful as a starting point, but scrutinize the lessons carefully before you teach. Includes a DVD of the authors teaching."

Dancing in Your School: A Guide for Preschool and Elementary School Teachers (School Physical Activity)
"Useful for starting points, though many of the ideas need to be more developed to create complete lessons and take your students to higher-order thinking skills as they are moving.  Many of the suggestions are just activities, and more thorough explanations of similar ideas can be found in Gilbert's books."
