REC 390 Meeting Children’s Needs Through Movement

The purpose of this course is to assist professionals working with elementary-aged children in an educational, recreational, or counseling setting to use play in order to help children learn the skills needed for living. These skills include appropriate social interaction, focusing and maintaining attention, creativity, perseverance, emotional control, physical skills, and physical fitness. A primary focus in this course is the theory of “progressive challenges” in which multiple levels of difficulty are made available to the participant and the level of involvement chosen is left to the individual.
