Abstract

Western Oregon University prepares its physical educators through a process of planning, teaching, evaluating, and reflecting. As part of the WOU Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) program, students receive in-depth, hands-on experience teaching children and youth. Preparing to become a physical educator begins with an understanding of what constitutes a quality curriculum. Planning purposeful lessons involves analyzing students’ needs and developing meaningful content with developmentally appropriate adaptations for individuals. Lesson objectives aligned with standards helps clarify what students will learn and what teachers will assess. Teaching lessons allows PETE majors to practice contemporary instructional methods that will carry over into their teaching careers. Evaluation provides information on student learning and teaching effectiveness. Video observations following each teaching episode allow students to evaluate themselves and devise ways to improve their teaching. Reflecting on each lesson further clarifies the importance of Physical Education and how quality instructional methods and curriculum design can positively impact the lives of children and youth.
