NEWS / University of West Florida Conference July 2007
Sara was invited as the keynote speaker at the University of West Florida, Physical Education Summer Institute to address the theme "Teaching Styles in Physical Education." In addition to the keynote, Dr. Ashworth conducted two 3-hour activity sessions presenting selected Spectrum teaching styles. Five UWF students assisted in this workshop presentation by designing active lessons for the participants to experience the essences of the different styles. The students' willingness to prepare and apply their Spectrum knowledge to different PE activities and their contagious energy made these multiple sessions a success. Many thanks go to Andrea, Danny, Frank, James, and Sarah. It was a joy working with them. Dr. Stu Ryan, the former chair, is a former Spectrum student of Dr. Beverly Yerg from Florida State University. Dr. John Torodorvich, the current chair and organizer of the Summer Institute, studied the Spectrum at the University of Alabama and taught at the University of Wyoming with Dr. Mark Brya, an active Spectrum Institute colleague and researcher.
