HPER 340. Elementary Methods & Activities. 3 Hours.

Provides prospective teachers with an understanding of a contemporary and reflective approach to teaching elementary physical education grades K-6. This approach to teaching is based on "Dynamic Physical Education for Elementary School Children" by Robert P. Pangrazi Ph. D and serves as the content for the recently published National Standards for Physical Education (Moving into the Future, 1995). Participants will learn and practice a set of specific teaching behaviors and curriculum development skills, which will be most useful as beginning teachers. Peer teaching and participation in up to six fields experiences in surrounding elementary schools are also a part of class. Activities in this class will result in materials meeting many of the INTASC standards. Prerequisites: HPER 301 and Admission to Teacher Education. In addition, this course is a prerequisite for HPER 341 and it is highly recommended that this is also be taken prior to HPER 391.
