Physical Literacy: How Movement Improves Learning and Emotional Well-Being

Professional Growth Opportunities

Are you looking for ways to improve student learning in all subject areas? Movement can be the answer, because it is not just gym anymore. In this workshop participants will actively explore the latest instructional models, tools, resources and assessment strategies as they relate to physical literacy and quality physical education programming. Teachers will have opportunities to participate in activities and discussions to make meaningful connections between physical literacy, cross-curricular achievement and development of the whole child. Children are not fully literate until they are physically literate!

Participants will:

  • Actively explore the definition of physical literacy and its cross-curricular connections.
  • Experience powerful instructional strategies to meet the goals of the curriculum and promote the wellness of the whole child.
  • Have opportunities actively experience different models of instruction and best practice.
  • Have opportunities for purposeful planning for responsive instruction with access to effective assessment strategies to move learning forward.
  • Gain understanding of the critical links between equipment, resources and instruction, and confidence in their implementation.
