Creating the “Perfect” PE Lesson Plan
Learn How to Effectively Plan a Great Lesson in PE
Target Audience: K-12 physical education teachers
To help teachers develop lesson plans that create quality experiences for all students in physical education class.
The course is designed to help teachers plan their lessons effectively. My goal is that this course will inspire physical educators to develop and implement lesson plans in their classrooms so that students can master skills and experience MVPA (Moderate to Vigorous Physical Activity). The course will help teachers to efficiently plan lessons even with numerous students and classes.
To learn to create clear learning targets with "I can" statements.
To be able to create a clear and actionable lesson plan template.
To design a mini-lesson that supports your lesson plan.
To reflect on your execution of the plan and improve your practice!
Technology needed to complete:
You will need a computer and/or tablet, Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. You will also need a valid email address to contact the instructor or turn in materials.
We have estimated this course will take approximately 6 clock hours to complete. This will vary with every learner. Since the course will take approximately 6 hours you could apply for 8 professional development hours from your school/school district. Make sure to check with your principal or professional development coordinator to see how this works in your district.
Students can start and complete assignments any time they wish. You will have an instructor that you can contact via email for help, and you will turn in some of your assignments via email to your mentor. Your instructor will communicate with you via email. The instructor will also review most of your work to make sure you are making the appropriate progress. You will not earn a letter grade from this course.
