INTEGRATION PRESENTATION
As part of my urge to push public relations for physical education , I have volunteered my services to my local Intermediate Unit in Pittsburgh to in-service new teachers( all subject areas) . To answer this query about integration , which is a vital part to my curricular ideals , I will post all the information on my website for everybody out there that is interested . I have done extensive research in exemplary websites and research for my topics of presentation : We ARE P.R. and Technology Strategies for all Content Areas. The technology strategies preview includes the following excerpts from the brochure:
The workshop will focus on using various techniques , webpages, computer quick tips and how to use all the available resources to build a collaborative learning community to share curriculum ideas.
For the We are P.R. presentation I have included the following :
This will be a public relations and resources guide to prepare students , teachers , and parents for obtaining information about homepages , homework and Internet sites . These can be utilized as a P.R. tool to bridge the gap between teacher and parent.

INTEGRATION EXAMPLES

How To Be A Player!
Introduction
It's getting warm outside and there are more daylight hours to have fun. For the first time you feel like playing with the other children in your new neighborhood. The only problem is all the children are friends and have been for years. Also, they are very athletic and team oriented. Will they ever let you become one of their teammates? Will they allow you to join them for one of their games? You found out that the only way to get in on the team fun is to bring instructions and rules of a game that everyone can play and it must be a team sport.

  
The Task
You are to write a report of a game in which a group of people can play as a team. Your report must include illustrations of the equipment needed to play the game and an illustration of the teams should be stationed on the area needed to play the game. The team will need to know the following:
   The name of the game?
   How many players are needed to the play the game?
   The rules of the game?
   The time limit on the game ( if there is one)?
   How much space is needed to play the game?
   How the winner is determined?
   How score is kept or taken?

  
Resources
Your may use any magazine or book in your classroom or library. Your primary resource will be the Internet. DO NOT do search for games. Use only the four Internet web sites listed below this paragraph.
~gnieboer/gamehome.htm"Games Kids Play web site includes all those games you played as a kid out in the backyard.
Physical Education Lesson Plans and Activities . Here you will find lots of games to play for hours. Have fun!
Sports on the Web can also be found at Nerdworld.com. Good stuff in here!!
Go to Homework Central to find rules of sports.

  
The Process
You will work together in teams of three. Each person on your team will have a specific job.
   One person will research for a game to introduce to the class. That person will find the rules on how to play the game and who, if anyone, invented the game.
   One person will type the one page report and prepare it for presentation.
   One person will do the illustrations needed. You may draw the illustrations or cut pictures from a magazine or book. No computer created pictures.
   All three students will demonstrate how the game is played by stating the rules first, and then acting out the game as it is to be played.

  Evaluation
The project will be evaluated using the following rubric:
Excellent:
   Report is typed and includes 4 paragraphs.
   No misspelled words.
   Include at least 5 illustrations.
   All group members participate in the report and demonstration.
An Excellent rating will result in a grade of A for each member of the group.
Advanced:
   Report is typed and includes 3 paragraphs.
   2-3 misspelled words.
   Include at least 4 illustrations.
   Most group members participate in the report and demonstration.
An Advanced rating will result in a grade of B for each member of the group.
Accepted:
   Report is written or typed and includes 2 paragraphs.
   4-6 misspelled words.
   Include at least 3 illustrations.
   Most group members participate in the report and demonstration.
An Accepted rating will result in a grade of C for each member of the group.
Novice:
   Report is written and includes 1 paragraph.
   No illustrations are included.
   7-10 misspelled words.
   Only one group member participates in the report and demonstration.
A Novice rating will result in a grade of D for each member of the group.

  Conclusion
Your class has heard the rules of the game and seen how to the game should be played. Based on what you have heard and seen will this game be fun to play? Does it require everyone to participate and be a team player? Will you ever show someone else how to play this game?
