Scientific & Theoretical Knowledge
Physical education teacher candidates know and apply discipline-specific scientific and theoretical concepts critical to the development of physically educated individuals.
Element 1.5. Analyze and correct critical elements of motor skills and performance concepts.
Artifact 1: CHAMP Lab 5
Reflection: It is important as future physical educators that we are able to analyze and correct critical elements of motor skills and performance concepts. I was provided the opportunity to do just this with students ages ranging from 6-12. I observed analyzed and correct the motor skills of the students in the CHAMP program at the J.M McDonald complex. I found that even with students of the same age range, many developmental factors have influenced their ability to perform motor skills correctly.This lab used a modified version of the TGMD-2, which is commonly used in physical education practice. With this practice I have really refined my ability to identify and assess students on critical elements of many various motor skills.
