Title: Moving education : building a model integrated dance partnership for elementary school classrooms
Author: Bontrager, Hannah Joy
Abstract: This thesis explores the relatively recent phenomenon of in-school arts partnerships through the specific lens of integrated curricula. Through a literature review and pilot project, its goal is to propose and evaluate the feasibility and viability of integrated arts partnerships in dance at the elementary school level, given challenges currently facing teachers under the No Child Left Behind Act. Chapter one describes the context and purpose of this study. Chapter two establishes important methods and definitions for the literature and research review. Chapter three examines recent and important literature and issues impacting arts in education and in-school dance partnerships. Chapter four provides a detailed background, generally and specifically situating the pilot project geographically, culturally, and within the methods employed in conducting and evaluating the project. Chapter five reports project results and summarizes conclusions.
