Do skills-based health, SEL, and backward design all sound familiar? But … what are they and how do you use them? Take a step back, take a deep breath, and let's take a look at basic planning. Together, we locate data, select and infuse performance indicators, align SEL competencies to decrease a risk factor, and then plan assessment and instruction. Toward the end of the session, we analyze a unit and lesson plan template to determine how they benefit your program.
Have you ever felt like you’re teaching an amazing lesson, but when you look around students do not seem to be into the lesson? Maybe you are just looking for ways to spruce up your health lessons. This webinar will introduce the 15 foundational Characteristics of an Effective Health Curriculum (CDC) and coordinate those with a variety of active and cooperative learning strategies to use in the classroom, as well as provide students engagement opportunities.
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework that provides instructional guidelines on the ways in which teachers can make the gymnasium a welcoming and responsive environment that promotes student participation through the appreciation of students’ variability of learning and skill acquisition. Through multiple means of engagement (how we engage students’ interest), multiple means of representation (how our instruction improves students’ understanding), and multiple means of action and expression (how we support students to demonstrate learning), teachers can make the learning environment and curricular content accessible by recognizing barriers and identifying students’ learning goals.
Are you teaching skills-based health education? If you are, you are already teaching SEL! Join this session to learn how to seamlessly plan, assess, and teach SEL, content, and skill using backwards design. The “secret sauce” of a unit or lesson plan is the age-appropriate prompt. Learn to construct an engaging practice prompt that weaves together content, skill, and SEL competency followed by questions that challenge the student to clarify and reinforce information and demonstrate skills.
Webinar participants will be introduced to the concept of active learning
strategies and will be given
examples used in the classroom to enhance learning from a university perspective. Participants will engage
in breakout groups to brainstorm how active learning strategies can be used in their classes.
In this webinar, you’ll learn about the unique vantage point that physical educators have to address the mental health crisis that has been plaguing communities even before the added stress of the pandemic. Tim will share his perspective, gained through a personal tragedy, and share the approaches and practices he has implemented within his gymnasium and school. Discover what might work best in your classroom to help you empower your students to self-regulate their emotions through physical exercise.
Nearly 14% of all students in America have a learning disability and even
more deal with attention deficit
disorder. These children not only learn differently in math and reading, but also in physical education.
Recognizing the strengths and areas of growth for children with learning disabilities is essential for
helping them reach their full potential as athletes, teammates and students. This presentation will help
understand how to structure your program and build lessons to connect with students of all learning
The purpose of this webinar is to provide a series of practical resources on
key learnings and applications
from Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program (CSPAP) scholarship since its inception in 2012. This
webinar will translate the cumulative research knowledge into practical strategies and techniques for
attendees to utilize to advance quality physical activity and physical education opportunities in/around
schools. The webinar will focus on research translation and application. Physical education, as the
cornerstone of CSPAP, will be emphasized throughout.
Research is clear: Students with physical disabilities are often excluded
from physical education — and
teachers’ attitudes toward students with physical disabilities can negatively affect inclusion. These
attitudes may be formed when teachers do not feel educationally prepared or competent to teach students
physical disabilities. Attitudes may also be affected by lack of resources. The purpose of this webinar is
to discuss how attitudes can shift, even if school resources are not available. A possible solution is
providing a perspective-taking intervention to affect attitudes of physical educators.
This webinar will present the wisdom of 40 combined years of practice
incorporating social and emotional
skill development in physical education. Participants will leave the session with strategies for
incorporating SEL into every phase of their lessons including planning, management, instruction, and
assessment. Physical education teachers will develop confidence in consistently and intentionally
incorporating SEL throughout their lesson plans.
