Engaging Others in Recognizing the Benefits of Physical Activity
Wilson-Graham, Dianne
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v21 n1 p31-32 Sep-Oct 2007
Recent research that examines the relationship between physical activity and academic performance provides physical educators with multiple opportunities to engage others in recognizing the benefits of physical activity and high quality physical education programs. Local schools and community provide the greatest opportunity to educate and influence others about this important relationship. Success is related to thoughtful preparation and having just the right tools when one needs them. In this article, the author presents three easy and important steps for being prepared to maximize opportunities: (1) collect, consider, and create; (2) Be ready for the conversation; and (3) Identify opportunities and build a plan for this school year.
