Where does the inspiration for this blog post stem from? Last weekend the Partners for Physical Literacy presented Growing Young Movers: Mini Summit for developing Physical Literacy in Regina, Sk. It was an honour to have Dean Kriellaars, Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy, School of Medical Rehabilitation in the Faculty of Medicine from the University of Manitoba present the physical literacy workshops. Dean is very knowledgable in the area of physical literacy and has created many programs that have been adopted and used across the nation.
We spent two days learning about the research behind physical literacy, how it has been brought into practice, how to enrich our programs and the assessment tools he has created.
We wanted to take some time in this post to discuss Physical Literacy, link it to our curriculum and give you two assessment tools to formatively assess your students and your program.
