Most resources for movement integration in classrooms are for primary school teachers. Grounded in both Social Cognitive Theory (Bandura, 1986) and the Change Leadership model (Fullan, 2011), this intervention study investigated secondary students' and teachers’ thoughts about movement integration. During monthly workshops, research team members modeled and discussed strategies for integrating movement into secondary. Data included interviews with teachers (n = 8) and students (n = 8) and field notes. Supporting Fullan Change Model, teachers saw change and continued integrating movement in their practices after the project. Teachers welcomed new ways to engage their student through movement.
