Level 2 Dance

L2DAN
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. Chuck

What Will I learn and How will I learn?
Level 2 Dance students will learn to understand dance in context, to develop practical knowledge and ideas and communication and interpretation.  They will choreograph a group dance to communicate an intention, perform  repertoire of dance, perform an ethnic or social dance, perform in a theatre dance work, provide an interpretation of a dance performance, and demonstrate understanding of dance genre in context. Students will also learn by dance practice, plus it is expected they will put in one to two hours of theory homework per week.  Students will require a refill and folder (or clear file), and blue or black pen for class work. Highlighters are highly recommended. To have a realistic chance of passing the course and gaining entry into the next level, students MUST attend 95% of lessons.

Conditions of Assessment
Assessment is by Achievement Standards - one externally assessed and four internally assessed. All work for assessment must be submitted to the teacher by the due date. Any work not submitted by the deadline will receive a "Not Achieved" grade.  If a student is sick on the day their work is due, they must get a Doctor's Certificate. (Refer Student Handbook for full assessment details).  APA referencing must be used if relevant to the task. All students are expected to follow the policy "authenticity" outlined in the Kaitaia College Student Handbook.  Failure to comply will result in a "Not Achieved" grade for the affected assessment/s.

Derived Grade Examinations
School internal examination results are used in the event that a student may have to apply for a derived grade for externally assessed standards.
