Murray State University COURSE SYLLABUS Spring 2011 DEPARTMENT: ACS COURSE NUMBER: PHE 400 CREDIT HOURS: 3 I. TITLE: Teaching Physical Education in the Elementary School II. COURSE DESCRIPTION: Investigation, appraisal and practice of methods, techniques, and materials for development of motor skill learning in the elementary school child. Field experience will be required. Prerequisite: EDU 303 and HPE 175 III. PURPOSE: This course is designed for future professional physical education teachers. The purpose of this course is to teach future teachers how to teach children developmentally appropriate physical education in the elementary school environment where maximum participation is key to motor skill development. It is a comprehensive course designed for applied understanding of knowledge, concepts, and skills in teaching physical education. This course focuses primarily on: a) pedagogy (how to teach) and secondarily b) content (what to teach). Students learn to teach, observe, assess and evaluate fundamental movement and motor skills. By the end of the semester students will have developed the ability to recognize, analyze, and demonstrate a variety of teaching skills employed by effective educators. IV. COURSE OBJECTIVES: Following each objective, and enclosed in parentheses, are references to how the student will be assessed on each objective. All objectives meet the Kentucky Teacher Standards for Preparation and Certification (KTS) referenced after the assessment parenthesis. As a result of participation in this course, students will: A. Describe and analyze the relationships between physical education teaching and motor skill learning.(Lesson Plan - closure should indicate it takes lots of practice to learn a skill) (KTS #1) B. Incorporate appropriate national and state Physical Education standards into lessons.(Lesson Plan) (KTS #2) C. Recognize and plan developmentally appropriate learning opportunities for young children ensuring maximum participation for all lessons. (Lesson Plan) (KTS #2, 3, 4) D. Teach developmentally appropriate lessons to peers first, then children in elementary physical education in a school based setting under supervision by K-5 teacher and university supervisor. (Lesson Plan and Rubric for (Rubric Mini-Lesson) (KTS #4) E. Effectively combine pre-active and post-active skills such a planning and student assessment. (Lesson Plan) (KTS #2, 3, 5) F. Realistically and accurately reflect on the teaching process as it relates to student learning. (Lesson Plan) (KTS #5, 7) G. Correctly employ systematic observation of teaching skills to improve student learning. (Systematic observation of others on Rubric Mini-Lesson) (KTS #5, 7) H. Demonstrate effective teaching strategies such as creating a positive climate, using protocols, demonstrations, set-inductions, specific congruent feedback, closure, visual checking for understanding, teaching by invitation, intra-task variation, handling equipment and materials. (Implements teaching Rubric Mini-Lesson) (KTS #3)I. Participate in hands-on field and in-class teaching experiences. (KTS #1, 7, 9) The COE Theme of Educator as Reflective Decision-Maker is included in this course by requiring student to reflect on their teaching and how students learned during the lesson they taught. The EPSB theme of Assessment is touched on briefly in specific discussions related student learning in schools and assessment in physical education. Pre-service teachers will be required to assess their students in their peer teaching episode and reflect directly on the student learning piece for the lesson. V.
