“Sir, I knew the last question – I remember doing that on the field!” This was the first thing a group of my ‘disengaged’ boys said to me after their GCSE PE exam.
These learners made me change the way I approached my lessons to ensure students had a good understanding of the content. This lesson – or series of lessons – will look at how a ‘theory’ element of PE qualifications can in fact be taught practically.
It’s easy to say, oh, but I teach in a classroom; PE can be taught practically.
The students you teach need to ‘do’ to ‘understand’, regardless of the subject. I have taught KS4 mathematics before – and the questions they scored the highest on were from the topics I taught outside; on their feet and doing.
Why teach this?
It’s time to get practical – reach out to those kinaesthetic learners, engage your audience to understand, not just listen… and forget.
