Abstract

Abstract: During Winter 2015, PE 430 (teaching methods) and PE 431 (assessment methods) were conducted at Talmadge Middle School. Along with WOU classmates, we taught over 100 sixth graders in school-based physical education (yes, all at one time). Sixth graders learned content and participated in activities specifically focused on fitness and nutrition concepts such as cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength / endurance, principles of overload, hydration, sugar and healthy eating habits. We 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.
