Making Moving Connections Across Disciplines - Monday, November 2 at 6:00 pm

As a physical educator, you have probably made strong connections and friendships with classroom teachers. These connections lead to the sharing of ideas for integrating meaningful connections across disciplines to enhance learning. This session will help you further those connections. Together we will explore portions of From Fire to Inspire, a program I created using the teaching and learning of a physical skill to build a framework of images that weave a thread that anchors, connects, and transfers to all learning. Children learn how their brain learns as they learn. Physical educators can then use the framework in physical education and help classroom teachers add a new dimension to classroom movement activities that engage learners and enhance learning.

Breakin’ It Down...Dance Routines - Monday, November 2, 200 at 7:00 pm

 

In this workshop, Chris will help you find the rhythm you swear you never had, by introducing his technique in breaking down songs and creating movement patterns that will translate into a fully choreographed routine. This is a great activity that allows for no equipment and safe collaboration in groups of students at the higher levels. 

 

Chris brings his extensive background and knowledge of music, drumming, and fitness to his own style of fitness drumming he's developed called Fit To Drum. He has had success teaching students K-12 and adults choreographed routines within a single class period by breaking down the "movement patterns", but more importantly, the song.
