Playworks to Hold Free PlayShop Workshop for Michigan Educators

In partnership with the Michigan Health Endowment Fund, Playworks Michigan will be offering a free PlayShop course on May 15. The two hour experiential workshop is designed to empower educators to transform recess.

The PlayShop will equip attendees with:

  • Tangible group management and conflict resolution tools that can be implemented immediately
  • An inspired understanding of how recess, play and physical activity can positively impact school climate
  • A powerful perspective on the barriers students face when accessing healthy play and how adults can ease those challenges

At the culmination of the Playshop, participants can nominate their school to receive a free, two-day Playworks professional development training on behalf of the Michigan Health Endowment Fund!

Educators/schools (elementary) that attend will be eligible to apply for 5 fully funded two year professional development relationships with Playworks that includes 18 hours of professional development training, consultative visits and a recess kit with equipment. Eligible schools need to attend the PlayShop, serve students who are 50 percent or more free and reduced lunch and be in Southeastern Michigan (Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Livingtson, Monroe, Washtenaw, St. Clair Counties.)
