Dear All:  We are in the process of planning a new PE conference called the “National PE Institute: Linking Curriculum to Assessment” that will take place in historic and scenic Asheville, North Carolina from July 30-August 3, 2012.  Please note that we have been able to get all of the foremost physical education experts and presenters for this one-of-a-kind curriculum and assessment staff development!

2012 National Physical Education Institute, July 30 – August 3, 2012

Asheville, North Carolina

The North Carolina Center for Health & Wellness, UNC-Asheville

 

Background: This draft post  provides a “sneak preview” of a new and innovative K-12 physical education conference targeted to: (1) the nation’s 500 largest school districts, (2) current and former Carol M. White PEP Grantees, (3) college/university pedagogy faculty, and (4) Interested others. We hope to re-energize our fellow PE leaders as to:

  • Implement Common Core Standards for K-12 Physical Education,
  • Use Standards-Based Assessment practices (ex: linking curriculum with assessment),
  • Work towards stronger methods of curriculum alignment, and
  • See and hear educationally sound K-12 grading practices aligned to your State PE Standards!

District-Based Teams: School districts sending participants are encouraged to send a team of at least four individuals –

  • Central Office Supervisor
  • Elementary PE Lead Teacher
  • Middle School Lead Teacher
  • High School Lead Teacher

Morning Format: Each morning, participants will hear from national experts who will share “Best Practices” for K-12 PE instruction and assessment (ex: Dr. Stevie Chepko, Dr. George Graham, Dr. Bob Pangrazi, etc.).  This is followed by 90-minute activity sessions led by “real-life” elementary, middle, and high school practitioners. This excellent cadre of K-12 PE teachers will demonstrate lessons and activities connected to practical ways to conduct “on-the-fly” student assessments.

Afternoon Format: In the afternoon, you will hear and learn from K-12 outstanding district leaders (ex: Dr. Jayne Greenberg, Dr. Marybell Avery, Judy LoBianco, etc.) who have put these “Best Practices” into action!  This is followed by 90-minute sessions led by innovative educators working in public and private schools – big and small, isolated rural schools; large urban districts, high-need and low-wealth, great resources, limited resources – who are all linking curriculum with assessment!

Costs: $250/participant; $200/individual for 4 or more. Lodging/meals are not included.
