The ‘DANCE IN EDUCATION: I HAVE A DREAM SEMINAR AND PRACTICUM’ will allow Lang students to participate in running an After School Dance Program at the Harlem based ‘I Have a Dream’ Program at PS 7. In this course students will explore the connection between engaged dance and elementary school literacy, mathematics and social studies. Along with field work at the IHAD program at PS 7 in Harlem, Lang students will participate in a Tuesday seminar where collectively they will engage in an in depth exploration of the field of Dance in Elementary Education. The Tuesday seminar will serve as a tool for reflection about the activities and interactions which take place at the ‘I Have a Dream’ Program, and allow for planning and shared curriculum development of the After School Dance Program. At the end of the semester, Lang students will help facilitate a performance and/or individual project by the Dreamers for their families and the ‘I Have a Dream’ community. Lang students will also create a syllabus for use in their own future teaching endeavors, based on an area of interest identified over the course of the semester.
Open to Undergraduate students.
