                                NY State Standards - End of Unit Performance Task    (What can the students do at Commencement Level?)

 

Type in: By commencement level student should be very good at the iDance program. May almost come as second nature, and should be able to help younger students get started and teach them some skills. Will understand the health components attached to the iDance and be motivated to keep a happy and healthy lifestyle, either with or without the recourse of the iDance. This applies to all NYS and NASPE standards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The following activities should be sequenced and represent a progression from the end of the Unit Performance Task down to the 12th grade, then 11th grade, 10th grade etc. all the way to and

Concluding at the Kindergarten level. Activities should be developmentally appropriate at each level.
