Why Does the Classroom Teacher Need to Have a  Role in PA? Children need several short bouts of PA for a  minimum of 60 minutes per day. Children are in school half of their waking hours. The classroom teacher is with the child most of day  and needs to ensure that children obtain at least 30  minutes daily.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
