In dance, drama, or music, a relatively formal production for an audience, sometimes on a stage. The audience may be a small group of peers, or a larger group. Note: In the suggested strategies in this IRP the terms presentation and performance are often used interchangeably. In practice, the teacher, sometimes in consultation with students, will determine the level of formality appropriate to the situation. (See also perform.) In visual arts, presentation opportunities range from the informal display of students' work within the classroom to formal, organized displays for a variety of audiences.
