PE 435 Health & Physical Education in Middle & High Schools

This course is designed to produce confident and competent middle and high school physical education & health teachers. In contrast to PE 424, which focuses on "how" to teach, this course focuses primarily on "what" to teach in the middle & high schools. Emphasis will be placed on developing an applied understanding of the curricular concepts through: reading, lecture/discussion, movement, self-appraisal, reflection, and teaching children. Students will spend a significant amount of time creative developmentally appropriate lesson plans and delivering lessons through peer teaching and teaching a local school utilizing effective teaching behaviors as presented in PE 424. Includes field experience.
