The Ultimate Unit in Physical Education
Heidorn, Brent; Weaver, R. Glenn
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v25 n1 p16-22 Sep-Oct 2011
In order to promote physical activity among youth, students should be taught activities they enjoy, and have the opportunity to develop skill and proficiency. This approach might result in more individuals being physically active for a lifetime, and therefore, potentially reduce the risk and onset of many chronic diseases. As educators consider skills, games, and sport-related content to teach in physical education programs, they must consider students' needs, interests, and abilities; participation outside of physical education class; the surrounding communities; and equipment and facilities. With that in mind, it is possible that the sport of "Ultimate" can meet each of those criteria. The purpose of this article is to provide physical education teachers with the basic, but necessary, information to begin teaching an Ultimate unit in secondary physical education programs. (Contains 4 figures and 2 tables.)
