Many teachers include cooperative games and activities in their PE and PA programs.  However, just because students work in groups does not mean they are cooperating - or - learning!  Effective cooperatives foster positive learning environments, increase student participation, and promote appropriate social behaviors and skills.  This webinar will dissect a variety of cooperative activities and teaching strategies then apply them to K-12 movement sessions in the "real-world."  You'll leave with free access to the resources introduced during the webinar so you can try them with your students the next day!

 

Attendees will learn:

  • Benefits of cooperative learning vs. competitive and individual learning
  • Integrating cooperative learning strategies into PE and PA classes/sessions
  • Sample cooperative learning activities for all grade levels
 

When: Wednesday, February 19, 2014 at 3pm Pacific, 6pm Eastern

Cost: Free

Who: Grades K-12 teachers and administrators, PE specialists, and after school program staff

Duration: 45 minutes
