"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!"
"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."
"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."
