Back to the basics - When I started teaching Physical Education, I had a partner teacher who loved to set me up to fail. He would set up kids to pretend to fight, fake an injury, leave the gym, sit down… all on his cue. Why? He was testing my basic skills to observe and adapt. This session is a practical session for teachers trained in PE or who have ended up teaching PE and need some tools to manage the gym, which if you're reading this, know that it is a very different skill set than a classroom. I will be sharing some of the Key Skills for the gym to engage all students, everyday in some key categories: feedback (zone approach so they think you're always watching), movement around the gym (why the middle is trouble), teams (student psychology), game modification (level the playing field), how to challenge all students and level the playing field between skill levels. I was mentored by some of the best, time to share the skills that make it easier.
