TESTIMONIALS

“If you are looking for a vertically aligned K-8 curriculum for PE, you have got to see what the Athlos Movement & Character Program has to offer. Been teaching for almost 20 years and by far this is the easiest to use, most comprehensive, vertically aligned curriculum on the market!!”

Dana, Illinois Educator

It [the AMAC program] has been SUPER helpful as I’ve gone along teaching face to face and then remotely. I sifted through the lessons for some of the more socially distant activities and implemented those as well as the movement prep for warm up. The students enjoyed them and were very engaged.

When we went remote, I used the PC [Performance Character resources] much more by having a word of the week and asking students to identify courage and optimism in their daily life and how we can use it in PE. They loved it! Again, very engaged.

Michigan PE Teacher

The [AMAC] resources have proved to provide immense value. I like the flexibility the program resources provide and would highly recommend these resources to PE teachers at any level.

Our school has emphasized SEL in recent years. I love the ability to use the Performance Character calendar and prompts to highlight this for students. Before, I would rely on “Teachable moments” to discuss traits like leadership, grit, initiative, etc. Now I can have a structured approach to engaging students with these concepts and highlight PE’s role in developing these traits. I have even used portions of the materials with my cross country and track & field teams.

I enjoy the ability to use the lessons as developed or take pieces and inspiration to create my own to best fit my group of students.
