Edu 475. Movement
Transcript of Edu 475. Movement
in the Classroom By: Michelle and Theresa How long can teachers keep students engaged during each lesson? We want to research if exercising throughout the day helps the teacher keep students engaged. Should teachers be required to enforce
physical activity in the classroom throughout the day? We want to know if keeping an effective attention span will help decrease disruptive behavior. Will increased movement lower disruptive behavior? We decided on a six month to a year qualitative study in order to have enough time to observe classrooms. Qualitative Study http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/story?section=news/education&id=7258351 Importance "And anytime when you have a stay-in lunch and kids don't go outside, it makes the afternoon very difficult," assistant principal Johnathan Levin said. "The kids have trouble settling down and have trouble concentrating on their school." http://aer.sagepub.com/content/32/4/845.short The Effects of Recess Timing on Children’s Playground and Classroom Behaviors Study Looks at Positive Effects of Recess Sources Topic: Subtopic 1: Endurance is improved by implementing positive consequences and through practice. Along with these techniques, incorporating movement prior to a lesson will release excess energy, therefor keeping the student more concentrated. Sources Movement: A positive effort made by teachers to encourage students to physically move about the classroom. Integrating Physical Activity into the Complete School Day http://www.aahperd.org/naspe/publications/teachingtools/upload/pa-during-school-day.pdf http://220.127.116.11/PT_Attention_Span.PDF Precision Teaching Attention Span Subtopic 2 http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Education/2010/0204/How-to-boost-student-learning-More-recess-might-help Source How to boost student learning? More recess might help. “Adding physical movement throughout the day gives students a chance for mental change and a release of energy. It’s a very important element – not only for kids to be around each other and to socialize, but also for classroom behavior,”

Methods: Interviews with teachers, students, and parents. Videos regarding classroom interactions and journal articles During this time we will conduct our interviews and complete any additional research. The classrooms we chose to study will be diverse in the amount of movement teachers allow per day. Timeline
