Linking Health and Physical Education to the Common Core
This professional development program for physical educators, health educators, administrators and all school health personnel will focus on linking common core standard to health and physical education curriculum. Using the four training tools for healthy schools, The School Health Guidelines to Promote Healthy Eating and Physical Activity, The School Health Index, Physical Education Curriculum Analysis Tool and Health Education Curriculum Analysis Tool, participants will have the opportunity to actively engage in K-12 health and physical education lessons linked to the common core and the new Missouri expectations for fitness assessment. The annual Missouri/DESE legislative update and recommended websites will be presented and discussed. The MOAHPERD Quality Health and Physical Education Cadre will provide sample lessons and assessment tools for classroom use. Resources will be provided for each participant to take back to their district and building staff members.
This will be activity based professional learning. Dress to be active and plan to be engaged and energized! (Bring your laptop, Ipad, reader, tablet and/or smart phone).
