As the old saying goes, planning to fail is failing to plan, which is especially true when it comes to long term planning for physical education. For example, we all have had those classes or units where we wind up frustrated, wondering what went wrong so fast. We all have had days or weeks of anxiety or panic where we wonder what am I going to teach today that will be effective and meaningful? However, by planning deliberately with the end in mind, you will have significant units and lessons where students walk away, having met the intended learning outcome and lesson objective.
As a result, your units and lessons will be comprehensive, high quality, and fully engage your students. Your program will also make sure your students meet their intended grade-level standards and help you avoid the frustration and anxiety that comes with figuring things out on the go. In this webinar, you are going to learn to plan your unit or year step-by-step. The instructor holds your hand through figuring out how to set up your teaching units, how to ensure your teaching standard bases, and creating yearly and unit overviews. The instructor also facilitates in drilling down to standard-based lesson planning with appropriate assessments and resources. You’ll also be aided in collecting student data to ensure students are learning as intended, organizing all your documents and resources, and reflecting upon future teaching improvement. Once you have finished this course, you will have what you need to use for the remainder of your career. All you will have to do is tweak what you learn to create from this webinar as needed.
