Appropriate Instructional Practices in Elementary Physical Education
Subramaniam, Prithwi Raj
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v24 n5 p16-18 May-Jun 2011
Teaching and learning in physical education at the elementary level should be a time filled with excitement and fun for both teachers and students. Children by nature are inquisitive and bring an abundance of energy into the learning environment. Physical educators who are able to harness this student energy in positive ways are able to successfully engage students in fun and meaningful activities. Yet, one also hears of physical educators who have a difficult time making content meaningful to these young learners (Solmon, 2006). The purpose of this article is to provide preservice and beginning elementary physical educators with appropriate instructional practices for making learning experiences fun and meaningful for "all" children.
