MINI-GRANT Gail Tyler “Planning and Implementing a School Health Fair” The purpose of this project is to inform students on how to be safe and healthy. They will be able to demonstrate the ability to access information and products and services to enhance health. This project will be put on by the students with the help of the teacher. This project will be implemented by first having the students research the teacherapproved health topics and then by making a fiveminute presentation to the class. The ‗School Health Fair‘ project will feature a number of different booths representing students and health care specialists. This interactive project will inform students on a number of different health issues ranging from taking blood pressure, demonstrating CPR, calculation of BMI, eye care, work-out plans to the dangers of smoking, drinking and driving, texting and driving and much more.

The organization and implementation of this project by the students enrolled in Health classes will benefit all students and staff at Airline High School. As a 2013 LAHPERD Mini Grant recipient, Gail Tyler will present findings from her School Health Fair project at the 2014 LAHPERD Convention.

Eliska Joseph “Fitness Gram Training Boot Camp” The purpose of this project is to engage students in the ―Fitness Gram Boot Camp‖ with instruction that meets the needs of all students. Additionally, this will help students to incorporate technology to gain hands-on experiences in learning and applying healthy eating concepts. Students are expected to monitor their progress throughout the year, maximize their Fitness Gram test scores, and improve overall physical, emotional and social well-being. The need for this project is evident; childhood obesity has both immediate and long-term effects on health and wellbeing of students. Students are not being taught about the devastating consequences of obesity. Health physical education professionals should serve as advocates for students by teaching healthy lifestyle habits, i.e., healthy eating and physical activity. This project will enable all students enrolled in health and physical education in grades K-8th to take part in the Fitness Gram Boot Camp and utilize the equipment and technology funded through this grant with age-appropriate lessons and activities. As a 2013 LAHPERD Mini Grant recipient, Ms. Joseph will present findings from her Fitness Gram Boot Camp project at the 2014 LAHPERD Convention.

RESEARCH ABSTRACTS BARRIERS AND CHALLENGES: ENHANCING THE INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS’ LEARNING EXPERIENCE Michael Moulton Northwestern State University Objective International student enrollment in 2011 has been reported to be at an all-time high of 720,000 students in the United States. With Northwestern State University (NSU) taking on a global perspective, the Department of Health and Human Performance has experienced an increase of international student enrollment with 6 percent of

the entering graduate students and a growing number of undergraduate students coming from foreign countries. Prior research has demonstrated that International students experience barriers as they transition into United States universities. Therefore, the purpose of this research is the identify barriers and challenges international students have while attending NSU. Methods A total of ten (10) international students were interviewed. Three undergraduate students and 7 graduate students were asked about academic and environmental challenges they face as international students. Five questions were cued to the subjects to facilitate a discussion. Results The results indicated that the challenges for undergraduate international students were distinctly different than the challenges faced by graduate students. Undergraduate students reported language/communication, fitting into a group and writing English as the biggest challenges they faced. Graduate students believed their challenges were the lack of direction they received in the process of obtaining the documents to get into the country, money, research and loneliness being away from their families. Conclusion Upon completion of interviews the following general themes appeared to emerge as common issues for international students at NSU: (1) Students consistently reported a positive experience at NSU; (2) Students considered talking/reporting/reading/discussing in class as a major challenge; and (3) A general consensus by the international students was the need to connect with other students.


TRACKING QUALITY ASSURANCE IN DISTANCE EDUCATION Susan Lyman and Lisa LeBlanc University of Louisiana at Lafayette Objective The present study assesses the implementation of the Quality Matters (QM) peer-review process. The purpose of this process is to certify that online (OL) and hybrid (HY) course designs at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette meet national standards of quality and to assure students enrolled in OL and HY courses receive a quality education. Methods To obtain an approval as a QM course, the course is designed to earn at least 81 of 95 possible points and meet all 21 essential standards. A review team is established and includes the Instructor (course designer), faculty member of the department, and a faculty member from within the University. One of the staff members in the University‘s Office of Distance Learning serves as the review team chair. The Kinesiology Distance Learning Coordinator, Health Promotion and Wellness Coordinator, or Director of the School of Kinesiology serves as the department head on the review team. The categories within QM that are assessed include: course overview and introduction, learning objectives (competencies), assessment and measurement, instructional materials, learner interaction and engagement, course technology, learner support, and accessibility. Results Data indicates that as of summer 2013, forty four (44) courses are QM certified in the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. This fall 2013 semester there are seven (7) courses in the School of Kinesiology that are going through the QM process. Conclusion It is estimated that all the health courses in the Health Promotion and Wellness (HPW) curriculum, an online program, will have earned QM certification. The presenters will additionally include information on the Model Course Facilitator process that is used in the program

USING PROJECT-BASED LEARNING AMONG HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE STUDENTS TO PROMOTE TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION SETTINGS YuChun Chen, Tammy Schilling, and Tiffany Bowers Louisiana Tech University Objective This project utilized project-based learning with high school and college students to develop and test ideas for technology integration in physical education (PE) settings. Specific objectives included to: 1) investigate prior experiences and perceptions of technology integration in health and PE; 2) determine the success and challenges associated with project-based learning as a tool for developing methods for technology integration; and 3) submit and present effective products or processes for technology integration at the 2013 LAHPERD conference. Methods Nine New Tech high school students chose to participate in this project and 15 college students enrolled in a kinesiology majors fitness class participated as part of a required field experience. Six integrated teams of four students were formed. The project was conducted in five phases: 1) project introduction and generation of ideas; 2) selection of ideas, team assignments, and action plan development; 3) project implementation and reflection; 4) product assessment and revision; and 5) dissemination. Results Every college student had used technology in HPE classes. Some examples included watching anatomy and exercise videos and utilization of pedometers and heart rate monitors. The high school students either had no experience in this area or limited experience including the use of STEM and ultrasound in their health classes. Twelve out of 17 team members that responded would be involved in a similar project although scheduling and communication were challenging for some teams. From the faculty members‘ perspectives, it was evident that the college students struggled more


with project-based learning due to limited experience with this curriculum model. Finally, two teams submitted technology integration proposals which were accepted for presentation at the 2013 LAHPERD conference.

potential to contribute to weight control. The fact that heavier subjects were characterized by higher heart rates and more elevated metabolic rates could be used as a motivational tool in fitness and weight control programs.

Conclusion Project-based learning with integrated teams of high school and college students has great potential for developing innovative and effective ideas for technology integration in secondary schools. However, more experience and training in projectbased learning is necessary to maximize success. Having the teams develop and pilot their products contributed to the learning experience and final product development.

Introduction The hula hoop was first produced in 1957 and became an instant recreational craze, with millions selling within the first year (History, 2013). Over the decades the popularity of hula hooping has waned but in recent years there has been resurgence in the activity of hula hooping. Hoop classes are now available at fitness centers; there are hoop camps and retreats; instructors are becoming certified in teaching hula hooping, and an international following has developed. Recently, vendors and promoters of hooping have been exuberant in their claims for health and fitness benefits. Some examples include a claim that hooping can burn 100 calories per 10 minutes (Hagen, 2012), that you can trim your waist up to 2 inches a month (Sports-Hoop, 2012), that hooping burns 400-600 Calories per hour (Hoopnotica, 2012), and that a hooper lost 150 pounds (Hoopnotica, 2012). Also, claims of increased flexibility and strength can be found (Hoopnotica, 2012). Limited research has been conducted on the activity of hula hooping. In an attempt to look at the fitness potential of hooping, Moris (1999) found in fourth graders a mean heart rate (HR) of 97 beats per minute (bpm) in 29 males and females taking part in 15-25 minutes of hooping instruction and practice. This is a low level of activity and not in any way indicative of the physiological cost of continuous hooping. There was some skill practice each day requiring students to learn how to twirl the hoop around wrists, neck, and waist and then games ensued, one of which required students to sit following loss of control while those not erring continued. Another involved use of hoops as simple bases for a movement game. In summary, the HR responses could well be attributed to physical education activities that involved use of hoops rather than to hooping. This was in contrast to Porcari, Holthusen, Doberstein, and Foster (2011) who reported a mean HR of 151 bpm in females 16-59 years of age

Research Chair Russell Carson would like to acknowledge the 2013 Research Poster Review Board for their thoughtful and timely reviews: Ann Pulling, Louisiana State University; Dylan Williams, Louisiana State University; and Melissa Wolak, Louisiana State University.

REFEREED PAPER HEART RATE AND METABOLIC RESPONSES TO CONTINUOUS HULA HOOPING Cay Evans, Jesse DeMello, Ronald Byrd, Laurel Richie, Constance Ramsburg, and Aaron Cunanan Louisiana State University at Shreveport Abstract Hula hooping has evolved in the last decade from a recreational and cultural activity to one that is touted for its fitness benefits. The purpose of this study was to look at the validity of some such claims. Twenty-five female subjects participated in 25 minutes of continuous hula hooping as heart rate (HR) and metabolic data were collected on a minute-by-minute basis using Polar HR Monitors and a Cosmed K4b2 portable metabolic analyzer. It was found that both HR and oxygen consumption were slightly lower than reported in a previous similar study but were within general guidelines for eliciting a cardiovascular benefit and having the


during 30 minutes of continuous hooping that elicited an oxygen cost of 20.6 Âą 3.31 ml/kg/min. This was 84% of estimated HR maximum, certainly intense enough to constitute a cardiovascular training effect. Worley, Rogers, and Kraemer (2011) reported that young women worked at 39% of their aerobic capacity during participation at the intermediate level in the Wii FitTM Hula game, but did not report HR values. The purpose of our study was twofold: (1) to add to the body of knowledge regarding the HR and energy cost of hooping, and (2) to examine body weight and body mass index (BMI) on these responses.

the 25 minute routine. If a subject‘s hoop fell during testing, she was told to simply pick up the hoop and continue with the routine. The testing was conducted in the physiology lab. An area had been cleared so to allow ample room for hula hooping for one person at a time which is a minimum of 8 feet radius from the hooper (Hoopnotica Hoopdance DVD Level 1, 2010). The television/DVD player were positioned in front of the subject during the testing, and subjects were tested individually. Prior to the testing, an experienced hooper served as test subject to determine if the portable gas analyzer would get in the way of the hooper during testing and no problems were noted. With subjects relaxed and in a seated position resting HR was measured and recorded each minute until the HR reached a steady-state (1016 minutes). During the 25-minute hooping task, HR was recorded each minute through use of Polar HR Monitors. Metabolic data were collected every minute using a Cosmed K4b2 portable metabolic analyzer. Means for both HR and metabolic data were calculated from the minute-by-minute measurements. Statistical analysis was through use of SAS software. Besides the descriptive statistics, t-tests regarding HR and oxygen cost (ml/min) were calculated for the highest 10 BMI against the lowest 10 BMI values.

Methods Subjects were 25 female volunteers ranging in age from 19 to 63, similar in makeup to subjects in the study by Porcari et al. (2011) (see Table 1). They were eclectic in skill and experience with hooping as well. Each subject signed an informed consent that had been approved, as was the project, by the Institutional Review Board of Louisiana State University in Shreveport. A standard sized adult beginning basic hoop was used by all subjects. The diameter of the hoop was 41 inches. The hoop routine was from the Hooked on Hooping DVD by Mary Pulak, founder of Hooked on Hooping. The routine was a basic 25 minute continuous hooping routine. The routine involved continuous hooping around the waist with various arm movements that worked the upper Results body.

We know some coaches are dismissed because of


their won-loss record, however, just as many if not more are fired because of ethical issues. Examples include Jim Tressel, Bobby Petrino, George O‖leary, Mike Price, Larry Eustachy, just to name a few. Webster defines ethics as: 1) Dealing with what is good and bad; 2) A set of moral principles or values; 3) Conforming to accepted professional standards of conduct. This last definition is the most troubling to coaches because of different perspectives on ―professional standards of conduct‖. What is considered professional standards to one coach might be considered unethical to another. We know as educators and coaches that we have the opportunity to teach the values of sports, e.g., how to compete, how to win and lose with class, play by the rules, play as a team, good sportsmanship, etc. We can look to our professional organizations for guidance on these issues. The National Association for Physical Education and Sport (2014) addresses ethics in one of their eight domains in the list of coaching standards and benchmarks: Standard 1: Develop and Implement an AthleteCentered Coaching Philosophy A well- developed coaching philosophy provides expectations for behaviors that reflect priorities and values of the coach. An appropriate coaching perspective focuses on maximizing the positive benefits of sport participation for each athlete. Benchmarks  Identify and communicate reasons for entering the coaching profession  Develop an athlete-centered coaching philosophy that aligns with the organizational mission and goals  Communicate the athlete-centered coaching philosophy in verbal and written form to athletes, parents/guardians, and program staff  Welcome all eligible athletes and implement strategies that encourage the participation of disadvantaged and disabled athletes  Manage athlete behavior consistent with an athlete-centered coaching philosophy

PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT ENHANCING THE SPORTS ADMINISTRATION PROGRAM AT GRAMBLING STATE UNIVERSITY Brian Harris, Christina Gipson, Willie Daniel, and Obadiah Simmons, Jr. Grambling State University The Sports Administration (SPA) program in the Department of Kinesiology, Sport, and Leisure Studies at Grambling State University (GSU) continues to enhance students with the knowledge, experiences, and opportunities to be successful in the sport industry. Due to the growth of technology, and the sport industry in general, the GSU program is challenged with the task of producing competitive professionals for the industry. GSU is the first historically black college or university to have a SPA program at the graduate level (Harris, Shivers, & Deuster, 2011). According to the North American Society for Sport Management (2014), Grambling students are competing with graduates from 207 other graduate level sport business programs in the United States. Many of these programs have more


resources and/or are situated in more sport-friendly locations, i.e. easy access to universities in all three collegiate sport divisions, professional sports, recreational sports, and non-profit organizations. To counter this situation, the SPA program at Grambling is building on the experiences and exposures to the industry through available collaborations, i.e. students working with marketing and management for the Independence Bowl and taking tours and meeting with the general manager of sport and entertainment at Century Link Center in Bossier City. Between 2012-2014, the SPA program included:

Two Professional Development Summits: Featured three members of the Memphis Grizzlies front office staff (one graduate of the SPA program), one Washington Nationals front office staff (graduate of the SPA program), athletic directors and other collegiate administers from LA Tech, Paine College, Texas A & M, and Grambling State University, an account executive from Octagon (graduate of the SPA program), a Canadian sport agent, NASCAR Owner of Xxxtreme Motorsport, the vice president from The Aspire Group, and the general manager of Century Link Center Bossier City, a manager of Shreveport Parks and Recreational, and a manager of New Orleans Convention Company, Inc who specifically works with the Bayou Classic (graduate of the SPA program). Invited guest lecturers for the SPA 518 Ethics classes: Dr. Samaya Farooq Samie from Birmingham, England who discussed Muslim Women in Sport; Hall of Fame Coach Wilbert Ellis who discussed Racism in Sport (from the past to today); Philitia Charlton from Dayton, Ohio who is a high school principal at an alternative high school for students who have struggled in traditional schools, discussed The Expectations of Coaches and Athletes When Academics and Sports Are Not Valued; and NFL official and former player Chadwick Brown who discussed Violence in Sport. Service learning projects in the SPA 517 Marketing Class: In 2012, students wrote marketing plans for a local Ruston shoe store called Tri-Running. The marketing plans were

presented to the company and parts of two of the plans were adopted by Tri-Running owners. In addition, in 2013, the class developed and maintained the marketing aspects on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts for five local sport organizations. Market research for SPA 514 Research Class: The students collected data on the reasons fans did and did not attended men‘s and women‘s basketball games during the 2012-2013 season. Student presented their findings and suggestions to the GSU athletic director, and this was well received and some suggestions were even implemented. Academic research opportunities: Ten students presented research at three academic conferences: Southern Sport Management Conference, North American Sport Sociology Society Conference, and Louisiana Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance Convention. Selected internships with: World Association of Sport Management‘s Global Sports Management Summit in Taiwan, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Memphis Grizzlies, Kansas City Chiefs, International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education in Germany, NCAA NFL Coaches Academy, YMCA, and Boys and Girls Club.

The aim of the SPA program is to remain current with the other academic institutions and expose the students to various situations, issues, and people that will prepare them for their professional careers. Students are given these opportunities, in addition to their general coursework, to learn about diverse settings and career roles. The thirty-nine credit-hour SPA program is intensive and demanding but can be rewarding if opportunities are taken and challenges are met head on. The SPA professors constantly work to give the students the experiences, resources, and exposures that the other 207 programs are able to provide to their students. References Harris, G. L.

LET’S MOVE! ACTIVE SCHOOLS WHY SHOULD I JOIN, LET’S MOVE! ACTIVE SCHOOLS? JiJi Jonas Do you remember when the best thing about being a kid was recess - running around, playing ball, chasing your friends? Unfortunately, our children do not play enough anymore. Only one in three kids is active every day. Only 20% of school districts require recess. Research shows that active kids do better in school and in life. Physical activity not only helps kids stay healthy, but it can lead to higher test scores, improved attendance, and better behavior in

class. You can make a difference by becoming an Active School, one that includes physical activity before, during and after school for at least 60 minutes a day. It is part of Let's Move! Active Schools, a national collaboration with the First Lady‘s Let’s Move! initiative. As part of Southern District AAHPERD, we are being asked to promote Let’s Move! Active Schools. We only have 53 schools signed up in Louisiana at the present time, but our goal is 100% participation. Mississippi is the only state with fewer participants than Louisiana. Member schools receive the resources and tools needed to improve physical education programs and increase physical activity across the school. ―Brain Breaks‖ for example are activities physical activity can be promoted during non-physical education class time. A number of grants are also available for teachers at member schools. The program guides you every step of the way to help you turn your school into an Active School. We may not always be able to get out and exercise, but we can set up a way for our kids to play like we used to play. Your school is the best place to start! Sign up now and get your students on the road to success. You can learn more and register your school at

ANNOUNCEMENTS CALCASIEU RECOGNIZED FOR CROSSFIT COMMITMENT Last year, Calcasieu Parish received a $300,000 ―Dare to Be Heatlhy‖ grant from Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Dr. Sabrah Kingham, Principal at St. John


Elementary School in Lake Charles, is conducting a study relating after school CrossFit programs to the effects in academics. She has agreed to present her findings at the LAHPERD Convention in Baton Rouge in November 2015. The first year, Calcasieu Parish had approximately 10 teachers and administrators CrossFit certified in both Level I and CrossFit Kids. Both St. John and Gillis Elementary School are serving as the first pilot schools hosting after-school CrossFit programs. Additional implementation and training is planned for the future. Since this grant was designed to target the health of Calcasieu students, it also provided funding for every teacher in Calcasieu parish to right to use The site gives teachers access to an excellent health curriculum.
