Instructional Design and Assessment in Elementary Physical Education
We plan to be intentional about instructional design in physical education, to gather evidence of learning, to ensure learning outcomes are addressed, to focus the teaching on building of fundamental movement skills progressing to fundamental sport skills, and to document all of this through either video or pictures. Laina and I are already scheduled to present our work at Shaping the Future conference, CCTC and will submit a proposal for HPEC conference. We think that it can generate some rich conversation about pedagogy in elementary physical education. Our sense is that teachers are interested in this conversation; in moving teaching practice in elementary phys ed to a practice that is based on intellectual engagement, academic rigour, embedded assessment, and filled with worthwhile tasks all of which measure student attainment of AB Program of Studies PE outcomes.
