Creating an After-School Program for Your PETE Majors' Middle School Field Experience
Colvin, A. Vonnie
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v78 n1 p25-33, 53 Jan 2007
In order to prepare outstanding teachers, it is essential to provide opportunities for teacher candidates to use the theory learned in the college classroom in a "real physical education class." It is difficult to accomplish this when the university has so many physical education teacher education (PETE) majors that they overwhelm a small school system. This article describes the organization of a practicum experience that satisfied the needs of the PETE students and provided a service to the community designed by the Department of Health, Recreation, and Kinesiology of a university that faced this dilemma. (Contains 3 figures and 3 tables.)
