Mr. Robert Williams
In physical education, the student is the most important aspect of the class. Physical education should be a student-centered course that allows students to experience a substantial amount of learning while experiencing the benefits of a physically active and healthy lifestyle. My beliefs in physical education focus on the need for education, encouragement and helping students to improve their overall wellness. It should be an inclusive course where all participants are welcome, encouraged and feel safe. It needs to be adaptive so that all skill levels and learning capacities are accommodated.
Physical education should promote goal-setting, teamwork, respect, and responsibility. Students should be provided with motivation to accomplish these goals, work well with their peers, respect themselves, and take on responsibility. Students should gain valuable personal and social skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. Physical education also needs to educate students on the basic movement patterns to help them build a solid foundation that will allow them to participate in lifelong physical activities throughout their lifetime.
It needs to be taught by an active, engaging, and caring physical educator who promotes lifelong learning to all students. The teacher should act as a facilitator and help students with achieving objectives and goals. The teacher needs to deliver the curriculum through effective teaching strategies and effectively evaluate students.
Lastly, it is essential that physical education is fun, exciting, and challenging!
