Applied HPE Pedagogy 2 ESP280

Introduction

This is the second Applied HPE Pedagogy unit in the sequence of three. This unit has two key foci; the teaching of fundamental motor skills, and teaching using the Game Sense approach. The use of student centred approaches such as Game Sense, and effective strategies for teaching the fundamental motor skills essential for effective participation, are important tools for teachers aiming to encourage their students to be active and healthy for life. This is a practically based unit and is designed to build upon Applied HPE Pedagogy 1 by introducing culturally relevant games and activities. Study of the various game forms enables better decision-making in planning an appropriate sequence of learning experiences. This unit will provide you with the opportunity to extend your knowledge in skill acquisition through game play as well as game play competencies and strategies appropriate for the teaching/learning of these activities to children of varying ages as specified by the National Curriculum. This unit encompasses the focusing inquiry by introducing specific content knowledge needed to teach into HPE programmes (K-12) and on teaching inquiry by exploring student centred approaches and how they can help students learn.
