Getting to Know Your Students: The Importance of Learning Students' Thoughts and Feelings in Physical Education
Fisette, Jennifer
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v81 n7 p42-49 Sep 2010
Students' thoughts, feelings, and attitudes generally determine their level of interest in learning and participation in class. For this reason, getting to know and understand students should be a primary goal in teaching. The purpose of this article is to discuss how physical education teachers can get to know their students by incorporating various methods of instruction. These methods encourage students to share who they are, what they think and feel, and their overall experiences in physical education. Giving students a voice can enhance their learning experiences and inform and guide the physical educator's teaching. (Contains 4 figures.)
