WHAT / WHEN

April 23rd -  Senior High School Physical Education (10-12)

With Ted Temertzoglou 

Session Description:  Building fit, physically literate students! (Senior High School)

 

Ted's recent work has been centered around actualizing UNESCO' S  Quality Physical Education (QPE) initiative in Canada

The United Nations Education, Scientific & Cultural Organization (UNESCO) identifies that quality physical education programs support physical literacy, civic engagement, academic achievement, inclusion & health. Our vision is to support the physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being of all students by actualizing UNESCO’s Quality Physical Education (QPE)initiative.

This session focuses on the older teen and young adult age group and includes discussion and activities related to the impact we have as educators, facilitators and leaders on the cognitive, social, emotional, mental and physical well-being of our youth. We will explore games, activities fitness and progressions that can be used with children of varied abilities to achieve multiple outcomes—and share ideas for engaging parents, guardians and the community in these activities. 

Teachers will also work with Ted and colleagues that make use of technology and other innovative tools/techniques for incorporating a fitness emphasis in High School P.E.  Assessment and Evaluation will also be incorporated into this session and a particular highlight will be discussion and activities that help teachers engage students and their families in taking increased responsibility for their participation in P.E. 

Experience for yourself how these games develop fundamental movement and sports skills while also improving mental well-being and reducing stress. 


Wear athletic gear and expect to choose a level of physical involvement that is most comfortable for you.
