My goal during my movement composition unit was to make visual all of the learning that took place. I continually recorded my students' ideas, in poster form, and kept these visuals up for the entire duration of the unit. I blogged about my intent here at a few weeks back. I was not disappointed in the least as we had loads of great discussion by using the visuals that were posted on the 4 walls of the movement composition room.
As a conclusion to the unit, I gathered and posted all of the visuals on one of the walls and sat a few of my classes down to have one final discussion and to essentially sum up what they had learned during the unit. It was an excellent way to bring it all together. I will take down all of the visuals that you see in the picture below and file them away until next year. I plan on creating all new visuals next time around, but will keep the ones created this unit as a potential resource for future movement composition units. I am very pleased with this approach as the goal I had set for myself at the beginning of the unit was achieved.
As you can see by the picture below, some of the areas addressed in the visuals were: student designed assessment criteria, key student questions and answers, important movement composition vocabulary lists, central ideas, student generated rubrics, compare and contrast venn diagram (also student generated).

Fabulous posters. I am a bit obsessed with the idea of the 'writing on the wall' as a capture of thought and learning and a reinforcer of literacy. What are the words in the venn diagrams that you colour coded?
