ARESC to host workshop for physical education specialists, coaches


Arkansas River Education Service Cooperative, 912 W. Sixth Ave., will hold a “What’s In Your Wallet? (Wonderful Activities Learners Like Every Time) workshop from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

This workshop provides physical education specialists and coaches with a variety of unique and developmentally appropriate content, unique instructional formats, and fitness activities which are specifically designed to maximize skill development, increase activity time, increase functional fitness, and integrate core academic content.

The workshop will specifically address how to craft instruction and deliver content which meets the needs of all learners and identify instructional best practices which directly impact a positive and fun learning environment.

The BAM! (Brain, Academics & Movement) exercises and activities provide kinesthetic opportunities to integrate core academic content (social studies, math, language arts and science) into a physical activity environment and subsequently provide students with additional opportunities to fortify better cognition, understanding, and retention.

There is no charge for the workshop, but pre-registration is required, seating is limited. For additional information, or to register for this workshop go to http://www.escweb.net/ar_esc.
