The following is a list of topics designed for physical educators interested in learning more about how the brain learns and how to put that knowledge to work for learning in the physical education classroom. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 207-380-5490 and we can work together to customize a learning experience that best suits your needs.
From Fire to Inspire - Connecting Children to How The Brain Learns as they Learn in Physical Education
Teachers learn how to use movement to build in a time efficient, versatile, visual scale (rubric) that simultaneously helps children build neural networks for physical skills, learn the basic neuroscience of how their brains learn, and create a healthy way to self-assess and reflect on the learning process. Help kids realize that they have the power to change their brain to meet goals while building an understanding of the neuroscience behind it. We will create a cognitive thread that connects to all learning and discuss ways to reach out and connect with other teachers to transfer this learning to all learning done in and out of school.
Free Professional Development - For 20 schools or more, bring free professional development to your district or collaborate with others through ADA Sports & Rackets, LLC.
Calm, Commit, Connect & Engage
Learn more about engaging students' brains and bodies in time-efficient routines and rituals that serve to build safety, connection, unity, and self-regulation skills for increased memory, skill development, and learning.
Connected Curriculum Design
Consider time first and apply the backward design model of curriculum design to map the year and create units for more connected learning in physical education. Consider options for setting cognitive threads to further connect learning throughout the year.
Brain Smart Teaching In Physical Education - Learn To Tap Multiple Pathways To Memory
The more and varied the ways we teach, the more likely it is to be learned. Learn how to capitalize on the strength of multiple memory pathways for time-efficient teaching and learning in physical education.
