Teaching Secondary Physical Education

3 Credits
This course is designed to be a balance between learning the content needed to be an effective Physical Education teacher at the secondary level and applying the pedagogy needed to teach the content. You will develop an understanding and learn to implement either nationally-recognized or California-adopted Content Standards. Course assessments are designed to show that the knowledge gained can carry over to processing and effectively using it within the Physical Education setting. Students will also be exposed to resources which can be ongoing sources of information for teaching in the future. The textbook itself will be a great resource that you will want to keep as a handy reference for your teaching career.

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.
