Recent studies provide compelling evidence that the physical well-being of students has direct impact on their ability to achieve academically. Research supports the idea that quality daily physical activity can be a factor in improved overall learning. Physical exercises such as spinning, crawling, rolling, tumbling, swinging, and jumping strengthen those areas of the brain that are related to mental concentration, planning, and decision making, while aerobic activity seems to assist in memory. This course is for physical education and classroom teachers who want to help their students become physically fit and in turn, active learners. Teachers will be provided a wealth of information and practical activities for movement-supported learning.   NOTE: Required textbook must be purchased separately.
