Background: Did you miss our California State Standards Workshop? While this DVD can’t take the place of the workshop, it’s a bit cheaper ($60 versus the $199 workshop fee). This instructional DVD was designed to be used as a reference resource for K-12 PE teachers who have attended one of our California PE State Standards Workshops and/or to be shared with teachers who missed it. The DVD is divided into six sections. They include:
The Shape of Our Nation – Why We Need PE More Than Ever! This is an overview of a Powerpoint presentation called Improving Academic Performance Through Health. In this section, Artie covers national and California-specific health and fitness data. Find out why the national Centers for Disease Control (CDC) now say that the generation of students you are now teaching will have shorter lifespans than their parents!
Artie’s Ice Breakers: A great collection of fun ice breakers: Handshake Partners, Clap 3 Times, Okay Sign, Bumper Cars, No-Fault Zone Square Dance, Call Your Own Square Dance, Triangle Tag, Birdy Dance, and Zoom!
The 12 PE Power Standards: An overview of the suggested PE Power Standards that are aligned to the California State Standards, what they are, and why you should consider using them. Based on Professional Learning Communities (PLC) and High-Poverty, High-Performing Schools research.
Workshop Testimonials: Short video clips of teachers who attended the workshop. Their thoughts, perspectives, and candid remarks. Note: Please note that Artie may be available to work with your K-12 PE teachers at your next staff development day and/or during the summer months. Please contact us at (800) 927-0682 for details.
