Differentiated Pedagogy to Address Learner Diversity in Secondary Physical Education
Jarvis, Jane M.; Pill, Shane A.; Noble, Anna G.
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v88 n8 p46-54 2017
This article discusses the challenge of addressing student diversity in secondary physical education (PE) classes. Contemporary curriculum documents and teacher standards emphasize differentiated pedagogy in order to engage and challenge all learners. However, the reality of designing effective learning experiences for diverse students represents a departure from traditional approaches to secondary PE teaching, and research indicates that secondary teachers often feel ill-prepared to make the necessary adjustments to plan and teach in a differentiated manner. This article employs the example of a team sports unit (volleyball) to make plain a general approach to planning for and teaching diverse learners.
