In the dance studio setting, knowing your classroom cohort is important in presenting an effective lesson plan. Since students have different learning styles and personalities, it is important to be flexible and adaptable based on their individual and collective needs.
Think about the following:
- How will this class best understand the material being presented?
- Are they engaged and connected with the current presentation of the lesson plan?
- Is there anything that could be done differently to make the presentation more effective or engaging?
In learning your classrooms and cohorts, it is important to be flexible and adaptable. Know that your goals and expectations may shift- that’s okay!
Enjoy the process and appreciate that you are creatively working to inspire and educate each child to his/her greatest ability!
