In this Illustration, a teacher of dance describes a teaching unit based around instructions and directions that will encourage students to develop aesthetic knowledge, and practice the key skills of the learning area. These include body awareness and understanding the language of dance. Following an observation that students were struggling to understand the core concepts of the unit, the teacher has selected activities relating to a Sydney Dance Company performance about signs and symbols that direct everyday life, to ground the lesson content in real-world situations.
