This workshop puts the focus on using OPEN’s free standards-based curriculum resources, which give physical educators creative ways to engage students and teach lessons that ensure academic rigor in any instructional environment. This is an activity-based session — come prepared and ready to move! Every OPEN instructional module includes research-based teaching tools such as academic language resources, depth of knowledge, tiered question techniques, Marzano academic rigor strategies, universal design strategies, and social and emotional learning integration. Additionally, this professional learning experience will address assessment and evaluation in learning management systems, and how to plan for changing educational environments. This workshop is designed for a grades K­–12 audience.
