SPARK GLOSSARY

The purpose of this glossary is to provide specific information regarding the components outlined in the cost analysis.

SPARK strongly recommends the 6-hour training. Alternatives should be considered only if budgetary constraints and/or hours for staff development cannot meet the 6-hour training standards.

Instructional Materials

Designed to serve as a practical aid for both K-12 Physical Education teachers and paraprofessionals who work with students with temporary or permanent disabilities in general PE classes. The Inclusive PE Guidebook provides over 200 pages of resources designed for Physical Education (PE) teachers who teach a general PE class that includes students with disabilities. The guidebook provides information and strategies for creating an inclusive environment so that all students can be successful by participating in an authentic and enjoyable PE class. The guidebook includes skill adaptations, lesson modifications, sample lesson plans, and instructional strategies for 12 disability categories.

SPARK Handouts:

Each SPARK workshop attendee receives a targeted handout packet and/or access to supplemental educational materials on line. These handouts may include: Research papers, personal health articles, activities and assessment tools not in the current manual, web-site resources, relevant current events, and notification of professional growth opportunities. SPARK staff have carefully selected and packaged these handouts to coordinate with and enhance the SPARK workshop experience.

Staff Development:

SPARK workshops are FUN and “hands on.” Teachers/instructors learn by doing and become motivated by a dynamic SPARK Certified Trainer. Research data show that attendees teach more and better activity classes after participating in SPARK training. SPARK workshops are conducted any place, any day of the week, any time.
