Abstract

For the first time, during Winter 2014, PE 430 (teaching methods) and PE 431 (assessment methods) were conducted at Talmadge Middle School. Part of class responsibilities was to teach real 6th graders in school-based physical education. Sixth graders learned content and participated in activities specifically focused on fitness concepts such as cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength / endurance, and principles of overload, specificity and adaptation. This presentation will showcase our work with TMS students, and what we as future teachers learned about teaching, learning, middle school students, and the process of learning to teach.
