TEC Announces Virtual Course Specific to Physical Education and Wellness Educators

Physical Education is Important! Here’s why …

As we begin this unusual school year, it is more important than ever to help people in our communities understand that a thriving physical education program is essential to students’ wellness and to a well-balanced school curriculum. This two-credit course is designed to give teachers and administrators the knowledge and confidence to speak of the importance of including Physical Education, Health and Wellness in a well-balanced curriculum. Participants will:

  • identify key components of a quality K-12 PEHW program.
  • explain how frequent participation in quality physical education can improve attention span, enhance cognitive processing and retention of information.
  • identify important stakeholders who are interested in maintaining vibrant PEHW programs.
  • develop communication strategies, including social media, to address important constituencies of parents, school administrators, teachers, and legislators.
  • create an advocacy plan that supports the continuation of a strong PEHW program.

Take advantage of this course to help you strengthen the Physical Education, Health, Wellness program in your district!
