Physical Education 2 - EDMT5695

Year - 2020

This is the second unit of study in the Physical Education stream and it examines the major sports in the Year 7-10 New South Wales Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) Syllabus. In particular invasion games (soccer football, netball, touch football, lacrosse); net/wall games (tennis, volleyball); striking games (cricket, softball); target games (lawn bowls); gymnastics and dance are taught using both direct and indirect instruction with a focus of peer observation, technique detection and correction. All subject matter in this unit is underpinned and governed by organisation; risk management; inclusivity; differentiation; curriculum planning, programming and assessment. In the practical workshops skills will be developed, corrected and refined, while curriculum content and pedagogy will be examined in relation to physical education and general education learning theory. Issues related to authentic assessment in physical education pedagogy are also explored. The unit will also integrate theoretical and practical knowledge in the study of physical education pedagogy focused on the intellectual dimensions of movement, inclusive pedagogy and the development of skills within contexts that give it meaning and relevance for learners.
