I found a lot of the ideas in this week’s readings to be very relatable to me. Although I do enjoy engaging in sporting activities, I have always felt that PE classes (at least in my experiences) tend to favor specific groups of students while alienating others. My personal experiences in PE classes placed great importance on fundamental skills and sport literacy, but ignored the mental and emotional elements of physical literacy. Developing an understanding of the fundamental movement skills is a necessary building block for further exploration of function, form, feelings, and flow. However, it seems that too often teachers get caught up in the fundamentals without acknowledging the large variety of ways in which these skills can be applied to everyday life (not just on the sports field). The textbook offered many interesting alternative ideas for PE activities that I have not been lucky enough to participate in, but believe would be most excellent to incorporate into the curriculum. Some of these ideas include circus and flow arts, yoga, climbing, juggling, hooping, martial arts, and horse riding (pg.234). I believe that the more variety a teacher incorporates into their lessons, the more likely they will be able to appeal to a larger audience. Physical and Health Education is not just for athletic students and we need to develop teaching approaches that reflects this.
