Posted on 8/27/2014 11:10:29 AM

David Wachob, assistant professor in the Department of Kinesiology, Health, and Sport Science, published an article titled “Starting A University-Based K–12 Educational Program for Homeschooling Families” in the Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance.

The article was based on the IUP Homeschool Physical Education Program (HPEP), which Wachob started nearly three years ago. This instructional program provides K–12 homeschooling students with standards-based lessons that are taught by pre-service teachers in the Health and Physical Education program. The article discusses the benefits, considerations, and logistics of operating a program of this nature. Wachob also recently presented his paper at the 127th annual convention of the Society of Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE America) in St. Louis, Mo.

The Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD) is a peer-reviewed journal published monthly by the Society of Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE America). JOPERD is SHAPE America's cornerstone journal, reaching 12,000+ members and subscribers and providing information on a variety of health, physical education, recreation, and dance issues.
