Social-emotional learning and character development have long been a point of focus in education. Great teachers have always worked hard to help students mature into caring and positive adults. This month’s PE Huddle will examine why physical education is often an important environment for developing positive character traits. Join us as we chat about practical ways to integrate reflection, self-control, caring about others, and grit into physical education. If all the issues with COVID have helped create rage and anger, we as teachers can help students learn to cope and even prosper in these difficult times. Join our guests Chris Nichols and Leigh Anderson as they share their efforts to teach social-emotional skills within a successful physical education setting.
