Physical educators who attend this one-day training will learn about:

 – Recent P.E. developments in Illinois

 – Recent revisions to State Learning Standards (SLS) on Physical Development & Health – including a thorough review of the SLS

 – Benefits of Enhanced P.E. for students’ health and academic achievement

Physical educators will leave the training with practical, immediately-applicable strategies, and tools & resources to:

 – Increase moderate-to-vigorous activity levels in classes using modified games and classroom management procedures

 – Use backwards design to align curriculum with State Learning Standards

 – Administer the fitness tests that will be required in IL starting in the 2016‐17 academic year

 – Understand what to do with fitness data – keys to meaningful implementation

 – Teach the brain/body connection – getting students to ‘own’ their fitness

 – Champion P.E. and wellness efforts in their schools, districts and communities
