PK: 
a. Respond to peer and teacher suggestions for changing movement through guided improvisational experiences. b. Identify parts of the body and document a body shape or position through drawings (e.g. notation symbols) or oral language.
K: 
a. Apply self, peer, and teacher suggestions for changing movement through guided improvisational experiences. b. Depict a dance movement by drawing a picture, using a symbol, or working with media technology.
1: 
a. Apply self, peer, and teacher suggestions to revise and complete short sequences based on own movement ideas. b. Document a short movement sequence (e.g. jump, turn, slide) by drawing a picture, using a symbol, or working with media technology.
2: 
a. Explore movement choices in response to others' suggestions and develop improvisational and/or short remembered sequences. b. Document the levels (e.g. high, middle, low) of movement combinations by drawing a picture, using a symbol, or working with media technology.
3: 
a. Revise movement choices in response to teacher and peer feedback to improve a short dance study. Describe the changes made in the movements after revision. b. Document directions or spatial patterns in a dance study by drawing a picture or pathway map, using symbols, or working with media technology.
4: 
a. Revise movement material, using peer or teacher feedback and self-reflection, to improve communication of artistic intent in a short dance study. Explain movement choices and revisions made in the process. b. Document the relationships (e.g. next to, above, below, behind, in front of) between two or more dancers in a movement sequence by drawing a picture, pathway map, using symbols, or working with media technology.
5: 
a. Explore alternate movement revisions, using self, peer, or teacher feedback, to expand choreographic ideas for a dance study that communicates artistic intent. Explain movement choices and refinements. b. Document various stages in the revision of a dance sequence through writing, symbols, or media technology.
6: 
a. Revise dance compositions based on artistic criteria developed collaboratively, using self, peer, or teacher feedback. Explain rationale for revisions and how choices relate to artistic intent. b. Explore or invent a system to document a dance sequence through writing, symbols, or media technology.
7: 
a. Evaluate possible revisions of dance compositions and reconsider artistic criteria, based on self-reflection, and peer and teacher feedback. Explain rationale for choices and how they clarify artistic intent. b. Investigate a recognized system of documentation to record a dance sequence by using words, symbols, or media technologies.
8: 
a. Revise choreography independently or collaboratively, based on artistic criteria, self-reflection, and peer or teacher feedback. Articulate rationale for choices and revisions, and explain how they clarify and enhance artistic intent. b. Experiment with aspects of a recognized system of documentation to record a section of a dance by using words, symbols, or media technologies.
HS Proficient: 
a. Clarify the artistic intent of a dance by manipulating choreographic devices and dance structures, based on established artistic criteria and feedback from others. Analyze and evaluate impact of choices made in the revision process. b. Compare and discuss recognized systems of documentation used to document dance using writing, symbols, or media technologies. Develop a strategy to record sections of a dance in order to remember dance phrases, movement ideas and revision. Peer and self-review will be facilitated by the use of media technologies.
HS Accomplished: 
a. Clarify the artistic intent of a dance by refining choreographic devices and dance structures, independently or collaboratively, using established artistic criteria, self-reflection and the feedback of others. Analyze and evaluate impact of choices made in the revision process. b. Research one or more official dance notation systems. Record the formations and dance phrases of the dances created in the class using a system of dance documentation (e.g. writing, a form of notation symbols, or using media technologies), in order to remember phrases, movement ideas, and revisions. Peer and self-review will be facilitated by the use of media technologies.
HS Advanced : 
a. Clarify the artistic intent of a dance by manipulating and refining choreographic devices, dance structures, and artistic criteria, using self-reflection and feedback from others. Document choices made in the revision process and justify how the refinements support artistic intent. b. Document a dance (formations, steps, dynamics, artistic intent, expressions) as a tool to remember ideas and revisions, and for reflection and feedback using systems of dance documentation (e.g. writing, a form of notation symbols, or using media technologies). Peer and self-review will be facilitated by the use of media technologies.
