InPE = The PE Interviews

Here are my interviews with Dr. Ernie Medina, Paul Zientarski, Ken Reed, Ed Kassanders and George Velarde at the Phil Lawler DuPage County Institute For PE, Health, Driver Ed.held in Naperville, IL back in March 2012. With a special message for SUNY Cortland PE teacher-candidates and student-teachers. http://schools.naperville203.org/north/academicdepartments/DuPageCountyInstit...



Note: Phil Lawler was the crusader who helped to refocus physical education to a wellness-based model that encourages fitness for a lifetime. 

Ken Reed
Game Changer captures the passion of this legend in the field of physical education who believed that every child—regardless of athletic ability—should be given a chance to find an activity he or she can embrace and enjoy for a lifetime.
Ken Reed's book Game Changer (based on Phil Lawler's mission) is available http://www.amazon.com/Game-Changer-Improving-Education-ebook/dp/B0076QCB7Q
