SCHOOL HEALTH AND WELLNESS (PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND NUTRITION)
Learn the latest information on the importance of physical education for a lifetime of good health, as well as the current health problems facing our youth. Your trainer will share his/her knowledge about the many ways of making PE appealing to youth in addition to discussing safety issues, current technology and equipment, and information on best practices. Nutrition and exercise go hand-in-hand to develop healthy, lifelong habits and behavior. If you desire to include a nutrition aspect into this training, we can arrange for our registered dietitian to provide you with up-to-date information on the
importance of good nutrition for children and how it impacts learning, their health, and their future. Another service that can be provided by the dietitian as a part of this workshop involves the analysis of your current cafeteria menus and food policies. She will then be able to make recommendations for improving nutritious and tasty options for both your staff and your students.
USING MUSIC AND MOVEMENT IN AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS
More and more educators are using music and movement to help struggling students with academic content. For instance, both math and reading are utilized in playing and creating music. Also consider that one important characteristic of an effective after school program involves offering academic help to students that is different from what they receive in their regular classroom program. This training incorporates a variety of resources and techniques to show teachers how to use strategies that will help students learn academic content with music and movement so they make connections and remember higher level concepts. If you desire, our trainer can also introduce and enhance your skills, resources, and knowledge for utilizing music therapy to change inappropriate behavior or for special education programs.
ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE
English language acquisition is very important for our second language learners. This workshop is custom designed to help teachers develop effective strategies for whatever grade level or academic subject they are teaching. A second language cannot be drilled into the minds of students; it must be acquired through structured activities that take place in authentic classroom and other settings. During this workshop, our trainer will work with your teachers to help them properly build language acquisition into every lesson they teach.
