For years, thoughtful physical education teachers have explored the concept of "Universal Design" in order to provide the most equitable physical education experience for all children and youth.  As more and more children with disabilities are being included into general physical education classes, there is a urgent need to determine what variables are at work.

This presentation will introduce the Lieberman/Brian Inclusive Rating Scale for Physical Education (LIRSPE) as one tool to evaluate program progress.  This valid and reliable instrument can help all teachers be more successful at addressing the needs of all children. Participants will also learn the various ways the instrument can be used to their advantage and how to get it!

Dave Senecal's "Great Net Games to Help Students to Learn Skills & Tactics to Be Successful"
Net/wall games can be difficult for many students and teachers for several reasons. For students, it's sometime hard to get involved in games like volleyball where highly skilled players tend to hog the court. Or in games like badminton/tennis, the extension of the arm (racquet) proves very difficult for the less skilled player.  Sometime teachers find net games difficult to teach because they lack the equipment and/or space needed to teach effectively.
This session will explore small group games that enable the teacher to accommodate large groups in a station or tournament setting. Learn how to enable the learners to progress toward proficiency in a particular skill(s).  We have found that skill repetition to be at a high frequency using these game-like situations. Please consider attending this session to add a bit more net game learning for your secondary students.

Pete Charrette's "Large Group Activities that ENGAGE"

Let Pete Charrette (Cap’n Pete’s Power PE) show you some extremely fun, fast moving and energy boosting fitness-based and manipulative skill activities that are ideal for large group elementary school classes that help students “start their engines” and “develop their skills”.

The activities are standards-based and align with SHAPE America’s current grade level outcomes. The session will include a mix of high energy music, fitness-based activity, manipulative skill movement and participant discussion.

The presentation will help provide new and experienced teachers with some practical, “cutting edge” movement activities that their students will really enjoy. The activities are non-conventional and fun, giving students new ways to enjoy movement which can serve as a catalyst to lead lifelong, healthy and active lifestyles.

The main goal of the presentation is for participants to come away understanding the value of providing their students with non-conventional, fun fitness-based and manipulative skill activities as a method of “engaging” them in their own personal fitness and motor-skill development.
