Mentorship in Practice Program: An Effective School-Based Strategy

Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v29 n1 p36-42 2016
The development of fundamental movement skills is essential in quality physical education. It has become widely accepted that school-age children who fail to reach the automatic phase in fundamental movement-skill development may choose physically inactive and unhealthy lifestyles. Therefore, physical educators must continue to discover ways to help students develop these skills. The Mentorship in Practice Program (MiPP) is intended to employ mentorship as a strategy to assist in the teaching and refinement of fundamental movement skills during scheduled recess time at school. In the MiPP, older students are identified as mentors with the responsibility of teaching cognitive and psychomotor skills to younger students. This article describes the potential effectiveness of this mentorship method, and shares resources in the form of QR codes for quick access to websites.
