Healthy Schools Online Physical Education Learning Pilot Registration is open to alaska PE teachers!
Alaska is one of the 17 states to receive the CDC's Healthy Schools grant, which means we - and therefore, you! - qualify for this great opportunity offered by SHAPE America. Registration is limited and closes early in February, so don't wait to take advantage of this limited opportunity. If you sign up before February 8th, you get a free membership to SHAPE America and access to a suite of webinars that provide practical strategies around the essential components of physical education.
The purpose of this pilot is to provide physical educators with tools and strategies to help create an environment that that ensures students receive effective physical education. Physical education provides students with a planned, sequential, K-12 standards-based program of curricula and instruction designed to develop motor skills, knowledge and behaviors for active living, physical fitness, sportsmanship, self-efficacy and emotional intelligence. SHAPE America has defined this through the Essential Components of Physical Education, which includes policy and environment, curriculum, appropriate instruction, and student assessment. The webinar series available as part of the pilot will focus primarily on appropriate instruction and student assessment strategies from peers in the field and include topics such as Stop Waivers from Redefining Physical Education, Technology in Action, Standards-based Grading in Physical Education, Grading Students with Disabilities in Physical Education, and more!
You can sign up for the pilot here by either using your existing SHAPE America log-in or by creating a new, free account.
