Shape America: Exploring the Mind-Body Connection

Social and Emotional Learning in Health and Physical Education

  • Venue: Sioux Falls, SD
  • Date: July 31-August 1, 2019
  • Price: $75-$325

Join SHAPE America this summer as they explore social and emotional learning competencies and identify ways to teach and assess SEL skills in the health, physical education and physical activity settings. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) opened new opportunities for schools to emphasize these important skills, including a student’s ability to make good decisions, recognize and respond to their own emotions, form effective peer relationships, and persevere through difficulty.

Topic areas will include skills-based health education as well as alignment to SHAPE America’s National Standards & Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education.
