Students explore the dance concept of rhythm. They generate ideas by selecting a theme and brainstorming a list of one, two, three, and four syllable words that relate to the theme. As a whole class, and then in small groups, they create meaning by selecting words to make a Rhythmical Sound Score. Next, students make choices about which movements to perform for Rhythmical Syllable Dances to match the meaning of the words in the sound score. Finally, they reflect upon their process by choosing one word from their Rhythmical Syllable Dance, describing the shape or movement, and explaining how it showed the meaning of the word. Designed to be taught in a sequence, this is lesson three of three: 1) Describing Shadow Dances, 2) Similes with Energy, 3) Rhythmical Syllables.
