Location: Richmond, VA (VCU)
Description:
In this workshop, physical education teachers will learn how to implement Project Based Learning (PBL) (or sometimes referred to as Personalized Learning) into their program. Participants will explore the meaning of project based learning, the benefits of implementing PBL strategies, and collaborate with other professionals to develop a PBL activity of their own. This activity based workshop will allow teachers to experience PBL themselves and reflect on how developing PBL activities would enhance the learning experience for their own students.

Topic: Adapted Physical Education Grades K-12
Presenter: Justin Haegele
Justin Haegele
Grade Level: K-12 Adapted PE
Length: 6 hours / 1 day or 3 hours / 1/2 day
Location: Norfolk, VA (Old Dominion Univ.)
Description:
When developing workshops pertaining to teaching children with disabilities in schools, flexibility is important. For adapted physical education-based workshops, we will communicate with the school district to determine what their needs are and try to meet them with an appropriate adapted PE workshop. Justin is perfect for this. The following are several adapted topics Justin can provide a workshop for.

  • Inclusion
  • Impact of Laws/ Regulations on APE
  • Instructional strategies for inclusion
  • Assessment and students with disabilities
  • Disability Specific Content (Autism Spectrum Disorder, Visual Impairment, etc.)

Topic: Large Group Tactical Games
Presenter: Dave Senecal
Dave Senecal
Grade Level: K-8
Length: 6 hours / 1 day or 3 hours / 1/2 day
Location: Atlanta, GA (P.B. Ritch Middle School)
Description:
Most of these games will work on the cardiovascular aspects as well as the manipulative skills because students will tend to push themselves harder to win the game or perform better than the other team. Competition is not a bad thing; however, the proper etiquette needs to be conveyed before the games begin. Large group games can be great places for students to hide and not do anything. So in many cases I try to develop different non-threatening positions within the game so each student feels like they are a part of something bigger than themselves. Like small group tactical games, this session will explore games that place an emphasis on tactics: the strategy and skills needed to participate in game like situations. Many of these games are considered lead up games to the actual sport. Some of the games incorporate a combination of skills that give the learner several opportunities to practice the skills in game like situations.
