1. What is the role of Education?

1.1. What is the purpose of education?

1.1.1. I believe the purpose of education is produce productivity members of society. To educate the individual on what society believes would help better itself and progress as a community.

1.2. What is the role of the teacher?

1.2.1. The role of the teacher in physical education to facilitate learning in all aspects. The teacher is there to instruct, provide feedback, and to motivate during the learning process. The teacher is there to provide adapt instruction, environment, equipment, and the rules so that students can be successful while learning. It is the role of the teacher to help spark passion and interest in this new subject. Also unspoken teachers are there to help mentor, sympathize, and be a model for students as they grow into adulthood.

1.3. What is the role of the student?

1.3.1. The role of the student is vital. The student must understand that this is physical education and the student must participate. The student must give the best of the abilities beyond their comfort zone. Students cannot be passive learners in Physical education. Students must interact and understand that the world does not work for just themselves and that they must work with their peers fairly.

2. What are you going to teach?

2.1. Subject Area:


2.2. Goals for Students in Physical Education

2.2.1. My overarching goal is to help students develop life-long physical activity and understand how to maintain good health!

3. Who will I teach?

3.1. Why adolescents and why teach this age group?

3.1.1. I want to teach high school students for physical education because I believe these last classes of physical education will make the biggest impact in their lives. Students at this point will experience mandatory physical education for the last time. This is where it is up to the teacher to make the last impact to help students live a long health life and develop life-long physical activity. Obesity is on the rise and a great physical education instructor can change that one class at a time.

3.2. What are my beliefs on how adolescents learn?

3.2.1. Adolescents at this age learn more from their peers than their teachers and families. At this age students progression and learning go to both extremes on the spectrum. This is why it is key when I teach to provide partner work and small group work so students can help each other by reciprocal teaching and self-check.

4. How will I teach?

4.1. Curriculum

4.1.1. Curricula will be on a sport education model for most of the year and movement based learning. Students will be taught how to perform locomotor and nonlocomotor movements correctly and be able to explain it to their peers. Students will learn all aspects of the sport for every position, penalties, how to referee, and coach each other. This will ensure a more in-depth learning style than simple participation in the activity hoping to spark interest.

4.2. Instructional Strategies

4.2.1. Instructional strategies in my physical education class will vary highly throughout the year. Students will experience command style teaching the least. Students will experience teaching styles of guided discovery, convergent discovery, reciprocal teaching, and self-check throughout the class. Students will go through the simple process of fading for feedback given and feedback will be given specific and corrective. This will allow students to have more freedom and more perspective to learn from. Allowing students to learn from different styles can increase learning.

4.3. Assessments

4.3.1. Assessments will come in all three forms. Natural assessments, formative assessments, and summative assessments. Students will be tested during activities for natural assessment. Students will be given written exams for formative assessments and for summative assessments students will be tested on each skill in a physical exam and written exam.
