The last two weeks in Phys. Ed. we’ve been focusing on striking and fielding games. We’ve been test running a project that some of the PE teachers in the division have been working on. It’s a document that focuses on the “Teaching Games for Understanding” method of teaching. We have been working through 6 lessons that teach the fundamentals of striking/fielding games (such as baseball, cricket, etc…). The students really enjoyed all the games and activities. It was refreshing to see how many new ways the concepts of these games could be taught/learnt.
The PE teachers in the division will be working at finalizing the project in the coming months and then we will have a complete document with lessons in all the game categories. Next week we are going to start a unit on skipping and speed stacking. Should be lots of fun!
