These are the questions I need answers to. It is for an education class, and I am supposed to interview a specialist. I would appreciate your help very much!
What is your role as a movement educator?
How are you supported by your school?
How do you motivate students who do not actively participate?
How has physical education changed in the last 10 years? How do you think it will change in the future?
Why is physical education important in the elementary curriculum?
What issues do you face securing the resources and materials you need? How do you resolve them?
If you had a limited amount of time to teach students, what are the most important topics you would deliver?
How do you encourage competitive sports, good sportsmanship, losing well, winning graciously, waiting for one’s turn, and other social benefits of physical education to students?
Great. Thanks Mike! I will be out for about about 3 hours and will check back when I get home.
I was wondering if you were still going to help me out? I don't need them until this afternoon, so no worries!
I am sorry to bother you again, but I'm just wondering if you are still planning on answering my questions. I just need to know if I should try to find somebody else since it is due by the end of the day. Thanks-
Awesome! Thanks again!!
PE is important in the curriculum not only to provide an outlet for physical activity, provide a "break" from the monotony of regular classes, but also to provide self confidence. PE teaches children perseverance, hard work, allows them to interact and have fun with other students as well as introducing them to a hobby or activity they may not other. It provides positive reinforcement of physical activity as well as an introduction to skill building and coordination development that may otherwise have not been introduced had there been no PE in the curriculum.
Major issues may involve budget, time and space for facilities. Getting around space and budgeting only requires some critical thinking and creativity. Including activities in difference spaces, using different materials than what would be traditional, as well as expressing any imperative needs to administration so that these needs can be met.
If you had a limited amount of time to teach students, what are the most important topics you would deliver?Hard work, sportsmanship, and perseverance are some of the most important topics students can learn and develop. Respect for their peers should also be priority as this is a value many students simply do no understand; that it is "ok" to be respectful as well as intensely competitive. As far as topics of activity, it would be important to drive home the topics that students can replicate themselves. Teaching games and activities that can be transferred to the home or out of school will result in a higher percentage of replication in the outside environment that would further benefit the students and make it more likely for lifetime assimilation.
How do you encourage competitive sports, good sportsmanship, losing well, winning graciously, waiting for one’s turn, and other social benefits of physical education to students?Teaching students these values all include positive reinforcement. It is important to understanding that losing, is a way for the student to improve and can be taken as a "tip or trick" on how to improve more so than a "lesson". It enables the student to take that tip and build on his or her mistakes so they can return a better player or teammate.Encouragement and positive reinforcement from all students toward each other are the best ways to illicit a repeated response both before, during and after the event or "turn. Leading by example, giving students ways they can assist and encourage their own team as well as providing that reinforcement as the educator is a sure fire way to
That is perfect! Thanks a bunch!
