Reviews

The first 15 minutes were a total waste of time with forced movement and exercise. and it almost got worse from there. This whole thing was dated and hard to sit through.

Really old and debunked information from a symposium taped (probably on Betamax) in 2013. The right/left brain stuff presented is not the current theory. I did this as part of the CEC club, so I didn’t pay full price. Honestly, that’s the only positive thing I can come up with. I’m disappointed that ACE offers this for CEC purposes.

This was such a great, engaging course!! I loved the ideas and energy of the speakers. As an elementary PE teacher, I have found some awesome tools that I will use immediately!
