From Classroom to Playground: Practical Tips for Using Recess Resources

May 9, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC+0

Whether you are a school-level practitioner or a technical assistance provider, there are numerous resources to help support successful implementation of recess in schools. This webinar will highlight recess resources from SHAPE America, CDC – Healthy Schools, and Springboard to Active Schools (specifically, Strategies for Recess in Schools, Recess Planning in Schools, and Keep Recess in Schools data brief) and practical tips for using these recess resources at the school-level. Participants will learn how recess fits within the context of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model and Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program (CSPAP) framework, as well as engage in interactive scenarios designed to practice using these resources for implementation.

Join Springboard to Active Schools and SHAPE America as we:
• Articulate the connections between WSCC, CSPAP, physical activity during the school day, and recess.
• Provide an overview of available recess resources from Springboard to Active Schools, CDC, and SHAPE America and their purposes.
• Practice using the recess resources for implementation through interactive scenarios.
