Taxonomies of Learning Outcomes using Dance Notation: Cognitive, Knowledge Dimension, Affective, Conative, and Psychomotor
This article provides innovative learning taxonomies that extend Bloom’s taxonomies, and those of other educational theorists, to dance education outcomes, particularly regarding dance notation pedagogy. These dance notation-based learning taxonomies are intended to clarify specific learning outcomes and make particular functions of dance notation explicit and accessible. This article provides a brief history and working definition of dance notation-based dance literacy and how it can frame learning taxonomies (Cognitive Processes Domain, Knowledge Dimension, Affective Domain, Psychomotor Domain, and Conative Factors) found in other disciplines. The dance notation taxonomies presented here detail outcomes that can be gained when dance notation-based dance literacy is integrated into dance education curricula.
