Adapted Physical and Health Education & Update on the Ball Ban

November 29, 2011

As much power as Facebook & Twitter hold to serve no purpose, they also hold (along with other various websites and methods) endless possibilities for people around the globe to get involved in advantageous and productive social networking.

Here are a couple of stories I read through on my Facebook Home Page from The American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD) & Physical and Health Education Canada (PHE Canada):

“Inspiring. Shows how important adapted #PE is.”  http://www.lvrj.com/view/adapted-physical-education-teacher-works-to-bring-kids-together-134656613.html?ref=613

” ‘For some students, recess is the hardest subject of the day.’ After a Toronto school gained national noteriety last week for banning hard balls on the playground, parents and teachers met last night to try and come up with alternative solutions.” http://news.nationalpost.com/2011/11/28/for-some-recess-is-the-hardest-subject-teacher-says-at-meeting-on-schools-ball-ban/

P.S. Update on field experience: 3 more days left!  Very satisfied with my supervisor and cooperating teacher evaluations.  I feel like I’ve made more of a connection with my former high school than I had 5 years ago as a student.  It’s been a memorable experience.  I will make sure to enjoy the remainder of it!
