4.84/5.00
Examine the history of games, play, sport and physical education using a chronological approach to discover their connection to Western thought and culture. The course takes a constructivist approach that is based on scholarly research using both primary and secondary sources, yet is made relevant, applicable and practical by being project-centered. Teachers are given freedom to build their learning experience around their own unique background, interests and location.  



NOTE: Required textbook must be purchased separately.

Learning is fun and since I am a big proponent of lifelong learning, the fun never ends. I have over 50-years of learning and teaching fun. Fresno Pacific’s Continuing Education has given me the opportunity to continue to combine my love for both teaching and learning. I set up courses to be project-based, allowing students flexibility in creating the projects to meet their own unique interests and needs. I continue to learn from each student’s creative projects. The goal for course projects is to not only gain content knowledge in a fun and practical way but to also provide material immediately usable in current or future classroom settings. I welcome you to join me in the fun.
