SPARK GLOSSARY

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

The SPARK Curriculum:

Busy teachers/youth leaders need a curriculum that doesn’t require a lot of preparation, set-up, or expensive equipment. SPARK curriculum is easy to implement, yet challenging and varied enough for even the most experienced professional. Clear diagrams provide visuals of many activities and helpful academic integration tips are found throughout the document.

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.

 

Follow-up/Consultation:

SPARK is unlike other programs where participants receive a book and a workshop and are expected to significantly change their content and instruction. Programs presented in this fashion often don’t last. SPARK strives to foster environmental change and sustainability of concepts and methods. SPARK facilitates these goals by training staff members to maintain program continuity long after the workshops have ended. These SPARK “Stars” receive specialized training at the conclusion of the workshop, supplemental materials, web-based content; everything they need to ensure their site continues to provide quality physical education/activity programming into the future.

For all programs, the entire SPARK team assists with physical education/activity questions or concerns. SPARK provides lifetime consultation and support via an 800 number, e-mail, website, and informative monthly e-newsletters and webinars.  Teachers can stay current on public health happenings via the SPARK blog, twitter, and facebook pages too.
