Secondary Physical and PETE Professionals - Active gaming involves the play of technology driven games, such as video games, game bikes, and dance fitness games with physical activity. This workshop discusses the importance of incorporating active gaming as well as considerations for developmentally appropriate implementation of these contemporary activities. If this is a PETE workshop, content will include implementation in PETE courses and provide insight into appropriate lesson planning for prospective physical education teachers. Host must provide gaming and interactive equipment.
Learn to assess students at different grade levels using standards-based assessments. Workshop participants will explore a variety of assessment techniques as well as discussing the when and why of assessment. Teacher administered assessments along with peer- and self-assessments are demonstrated during the workshop for the psychomotor, cognitive, and affective domains. Checklists, rubrics, student projects, and student portfolios highlighted. This workshop is also available for elementary and for secondary teachers. Age appropriate activities and examples differentiate the three workshops.
This workshop is intended for physical education teachers, curriculum supervisors, and educational entities preparing to go through the process of writing a new physical education curriculum or updating an existing one. Participants go through the process of understanding and reflecting on national, state, and district physical education standards in order to use them as a basis for curriculum development. The importance of essential content, a spiraling K-12 curriculum, planned scope and sequence, and skill progression is emphasized. After attending this workshop, participants will have the resources necessary to develop a comprehensive curriculum tailored to their local needs.
This PIPEline workshop demonstrates how to implement three instructional models in a standards-based physical education program. The three models included in this workshop are: Sport Education, Teaching Games for Understanding, and Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility. Ultimate frisbee, speedball, and badminton/pickleball will be explored by the participants in a very active hands-on format. Participants will be encouraged to implement these instructional models individually or in combination in their existing physical education programs using the physical education unit materials provided.
Best practices in teaching K-12 physical education are demonstrated through standards-based instruction. Through reading about and participating in demonstration lessons, teachers will reinforce their knowledge of establishing the learning environment, offering students instant activities, providing instruction using different teaching styles, assessing student learning, and promoting critical thinking. This workshop is also available for elementary and for secondary teachers. Age appropriate activities and examples differentiate the three workshops.
Receive hands-on training on the use of pedometers and heart rate monitors. In addition lecture and discussion will focus on integrating this technology into developmentally appropriate standards-based physical education lessons. This PIPEline workshop includes practice using the technology from a student's perspective (e.g. using the equipment, understanding the data) as well as from a teacher's perspective (e.g.) instructional, assessment, class organization). To help participants implement these technologies, information is also provided on advocating for equipment, identifying funding sources, and writing grants.
This PIPEline workshop focuses on the importance of physical activity in the life of the young child. Training focuses on the environments that support the young learner, instructional strategies for positive movement experiences, and appropriate movement activities. Each participant receives a workshop notebook that contains forty-seven lessons illustrating these topics. In addition to physical education teachers, this workshop is suitable for caregivers and educators in child care and recreation centers. This workshop can be presented in a half day or full day format.
This workshop is intended for both Elementary level and Secondary level physical education teachers, and curriculum supervisors who wish to be introduced to a validated skill assessment tool. The PE Metrics national assessment series provides ready-to-use protocols, procedures, equipment lists, and rubrics for reliable assessments for the six National Standards. From lesson development and assessment administration, to rubric and videotape skill anaylsis, participants will learn how to overcome mythological testing limitations with PE Metrics through a dialogue that ultimately enhances instruction and boosts student achievement.
Expand your knowledge on how to teach dance in physical education classes. This workshop provides standards-based instruction, best practices in teaching dance, dance content and assessment tasks to help one include dance in the physical education instructional program. Each workshop covers cultural, creative, and social dance forms. We learn by participating in all these forms, so come ready to dance. This workshop is also available for elementary and for secondary teachers. Age appropriate activities and examples differentiate the three workshops.
