Developing Physical Literacy in Children and Youth: Opening the Door to a Lifetime of Physical Activity

Project #251

Cole Wilson


This project explores ways teachers can come together as a community of learners to explore effective ways to promote physical literacy in children. Physical literacy is a key component of the physical education curriculum. Children with high levels of physical literacy have been shown to have higher perceptions of competence, self-worth and overall fitness.
