Content

This unit begins by investigating the history of physical education, sport, and health within an education context. A focus on physical activity and the relationship to children’s health status and present day health and physical education programs are examined. Emphasis is on exploring growth and development of children and the implications for healthy nutrition practices and the affect these practices have on lifelong physical activity. Planning for a safe environment and understanding skill development, basic planning and delivery of a lesson are incorporated into the practical activity. This is achieved through teacher modelling, student observation and teaching physical education lessons in a school setting. Students will also analyse the benefits and role of health in education and explore the risks to students and identity within a health context, school and broader community. Students participate in practical classes to enhance their knowledge and skills in traditional and student-centered approaches to learning through a variety of sports and reflect on the shift from participant to teacher.
