Integrative Curriculum Program for Physical Education: Classroom on the Court
Irwin, Carol C.; Irwin, Richard L.; Hays, Brandon
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v25 n2 p14-17 Nov-Dec 2011
Integrative curriculum has been noted as a best practice toward effective learning. Quality physical educators struggle and search for different ways to integrate other content areas (e.g.., language arts, math, and social studies) into their daily lessons; however, due to budgetary limitations, they must find ways to do so with educationally sound and enjoyable lessons. A program entitled Classroom on the Court (COTC), launched by Conference USA (C-USA) and funded along with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), presents physical educators an opportunity to engage students in meaningful and fun cross-disciplinary curricular activities through the context of basketball (C-USA, 2009). With the right pieces in place and motivated physical educators, this program can be used to benefit students and help teach in an integrated manner. This article will describe the COTC, how it was successfully implemented, and how to implement it in schools. (Contains 2 figures.)
