Canisius physical education/teacher education majors hosted Anthony Lafornara’s fourth grade physical education students from Stanley Makowski (BPS #99) on October 17 at the Koessler Athletic Center. Students from Dr. Clancy Seymour’s teaching methods of physical education course (PED 441/541) collaborated with Lafornara’s students to assess fourth grade student fitness levels using several different methods. Lafornara ᾽88 and his students will return in the Spring 2018 semester for follow-up testing. The experience is enjoyable for the fourth graders and allows teaching majors the opportunity to analyze pre- and post-test data and conduct fitness assessments in an authentic environment.
