Today Stephanie Margolis, RD, LD of BJC School Outreach and Development spoke to Parkway North High School in St. Louis, Missouri, and Buffalo Seminary in western New York via videoconference about body image as part of Healthy Kids | Healthy Classrooms.
She discussed several topics, but focused on negative body image (where someone has a distorted perception of her shape) and positive body image (where someone has a clear, true perception of her shape). Stephanie also discussed differences between boys and girls when it comes to body image. In addition, she covered ways to create a kind culture in classrooms, stressing healthy lifestyles and taking a critical look at media messages.
Designed for Global Nomads Group’s the second set of participants- the educators in the classrooms- these professional development sessions will provide an overview of the 2-part PULSE program- including the curriculum, expectations guidelines, and interactive videoconference tips and best practices. In addition, teachers will have the opportunity to “virtually” meet one another and share their expectations and goals for all PULSE programs. What a great way to get everyone on the same page! These sessions are free for the teachers whose classes are participating in upcoming PULSE programs. New Links to New Learning members, if you are interested in any GNG videoconferences, let me know and I will help you get them scheduled (including this PD session).
