Target Audience: We have designed this e-course for elementary physical education teachers; however, teachers from all grade levels would learn about alignment from this course. Because physical educators have first-hand experience teaching physical education content and insight into credible resources they are the perfect audience. The end result is knowledge merging from teachers (experts in their profession) sharing multiple perspectives that can be included in the Movement Concepts and Themes Unit with Lesson Plans
Course Purpose: The purpose of this e-course is to introduce physical educators to aligning key sections of a unit of study (a) content standards, (b) assessments, (c) goals, (d) objectives, and (e) instructional strategies.
Course Description: This online course will be based on an online discussion style format between the instructor and participants. A partial Movement Concepts and Themes Unit with lesson plans will be provided. Participants will use the discussion forum to share ideas with classmates that will revise and complete the partial unit of study.
To ensure the goals are met, the following template is provided:
• Content Standards:
• Learning Goals:
• Learning Objectives:
• Instructional Strategies (script form):
• Differentiated Instruction
Learning Goals, Learning Objectives, Cues, Equipment, Organization, and Differentiated Instruction have been completed for the unit of study. Participants will be asked to revise Content Standards, Instructional Strategies, and Assessments for the unit of study. The end results will be a ready-to-use teacher-created and student-approved Movement Concept and Themes
Each component of the template will be completed using the National Physical Education Standards that define what a student should know and be able to do as a result of a unit of study (standards-based education): http://www.shapeamerica.org/standards/pe/.
On the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Common core standards emphasize the importance of critical thinking; and, collaborative learning promotes critical thinking. Therefore, a discussion style learning environment was selected for this e-course (an online collaborative format).
