The purpose of this course is to help teachers examine and revise their current lesson ideas so they are more appropriate for your students and you will also learn how to use the CRAAP test to evaluate lessons taken from current physical education websites.
As physical education teachers we want to use the very finest learning activities to develop skills and knowledge in our students. While there are more and more learning activities available to choose from, we must become more discerning in our ability to select from and revise the activities that we find on lesson plan websites and in books. This course is designed to help physical educators find and evaluate sources of learning activities, as well as learning to evaluate the learning activities they find. In addition, participants in this course will develop skills in the revision of learning activities to meet the needs of the students in their schools.
