Sign Up for Free SPARK Webinar Featuring Sandy Spin Slade
SPARK is offering a FREE Webinar entitled; “Character is Cool: Building Social Skills through Physical Education“. Sandy Spin Slade, President and Founder of Skillastics is the featured guest speaker.
Creating a positive learning environment is essential for any physical education/physical activity class. Nurturing a student’s self-perception and self-image is a critical variable when teaching students to value physical activity. Negative experiences in a PE or PA class may impact a person well into adulthood. Teaching character and social skills is not unlike teaching fitness or sport skills. Students should understand the “learnable pieces,” practice them in authentic situations, receive feedback, and process their learning.
Attend the next SPARK webinar and learn how to integrate social skills into YOUR program, and/or tips on how you can take your existing social skills component to the next level. The creator of Skillastics®, Sandy “Spin” Slade, will share her personal and professional experiences as well as introduce you to an exciting new resource that teaches character education and helps combat bullying.
Attendees will learn:
- The role social skills instruction, reinforcement, and assessment plays in PE/PA classes
- How to integrate social skills into PE and PA programs and lessons
- Where to obtain effective social skills resources and tools
