    This hands-on webinar is designed to show how these types of resources can be of great help in any educational or recreational context. The webinar will divided into two parts: the first will include a brief overview of the topic with information on the theoretical foundations of this approach, while the second one will show practical applications of ready-to-use materials. Attendants will find that these resources can be easily made and used in diverse contexts to achieve different goals. These materials foster students' creativity, empower and motivate them, but more importantly, they are fun to construct and use.
    Learning Objectives:
    • Provide a comprehensive approach to self-made materials as valuable learning tools
    • Explain how self-made materials can be used in many different educational and recreational contexts
    • Provide practical examples of how to construct ready-to-use self-made resources

    Every educator is an advocate. While ESSA identifies physical education as part of a well-rounded education, the erosion of genuine physical education continues due to credit flexibility options such as waivers and online classes. Every school district has had or will have discussions regarding credit flexibility alternatives to traditional PE. It's time to bust the myths. Now is the time to preemptively and proactively take the discussion in a new direction. Embracing the inevitability of credit flexibility options opens the door to collaborative discussion. Speak up to demonstrate why physical education is also high stakes education. If you don't, who will?
    Learning Objectives:
    • Participants will learn how to take a leadership approach to advocating for responsible school district policy.
    • Participants will learn how to address the rationale used to justify credit flexibility options.
    • Participants will gain insight into the decision-making process used by school policymakers when agreeing to accept credit flexibility options.

    The Student Progression Model of PhysEd Instruction was developed over several years of team teaching and professional collaboration with some fantastic colleagues. It has completely changed the way I teach! The model differentiates the instruction by allowing those that have a good grasp of the skill to move on while recognizing those that need additional practice. The instruction is standards-based and focused on authentic skill development in each student. In fact, the assessments are used as motivators and allow the students to communicate to the teacher what they know and where they need assistance.
    Learning Objectives:
    • The learner will be introduced to the Student Progression Model of Instruction (SPMI).
    • The learner will explore how to develop units of instruction based on the SPMI.
    • The learner will explore how to manage instruction while implementing the SPMI.
    • The learner will explore how to motivate students through assessment and how to use the results of those assessments to inform their instruction.

    Are you collecting data to show student learning? Regardless of what your state calls the initiative, you are being asked to identify goals for student learning, determine logical assessment procedures, share your results and discuss next steps. "Action research" is a form of practitioner-based research that offers guidance for all of the above steps. The goal of this webinar is to advocate teacher use of action research to: (a) connect practice and theory; (b) improve quality of assessments; and (c) rethink the teacher evaluation process. Teachers will gain insight into steps for getting started with both individual and cooperative action research.
    Learning Objectives:
    • Empower teachers to use action research as a way to approach planning for, collecting, and presenting data about changes in student learning.
    • Outline steps to success for getting started with individual and cooperative action research.
    • Provide examples of trends in and opportunities for teacher research in schools.
    • Identify resources that support teacher communities of practice that investigate together and/or talk about results of their work as teachers.
