In an always changing educational climate, Physical Educators must stay current and in-tune with the future of our field. As PE advocacy still faces many challenges, PE programs can no longer stand alone, segregated from the rest of the school. Physical education teachers must actively bridge the gap between the gymnasium and the classroom. The purpose of this webinar is to prepare physical educators to teach with an interdisciplinary approach, advocate for and strengthen their PE program, and as a result, positively impact and increase student learning.

Learning objectives:

  • Participants will identify strategies to advocate for their physical education program and further establish PE as a necessary subject that contributes to a student's well-rounded education.
  • Participants will recognize strategies to bridge the gap between the gymnasium and other core subjects through planning and teaching interdisciplinary PE lessons.
  • Participants will locate resources and examples for implementing interdisciplinary PE, including information on curriculum design (unit planning, alignment, models for integrating with other subjects, etc.).
  • Participants will discuss how they about this topic and engage in a productive dialogue to hear and learn from others.
