Standard 4: Instructional Delivery and Management

Physical education candidates use effective communication and pedagogical skills and strategies to enhance student engagement and learning.

Character Development
In EDU 255: Basics of Effective Instruction in Physical Education, Jack began to develop as a teach and explore new methods in which to capture the students' imagination and engage them in an activity faithful to the imagination and physical education. In his Lab C, Jack developed a character named Xavier Waddles, Ph. D. This penguin was billed as the creater of broomball and captured the imagination and enjoyment of the students in class. Xavier went on to be used again in numerous lessons and other instructors to scaffold activites and keep student interest.

EDU 256 Bulletin Board
In EDU 256, Jack participated in 60 hours of field experience; 30 hours at the high school level and 30 hours at the middle school level. During this time, Jack observed and assisted in the instruction of physical education courses. One of the tasks in which he was to complete was a bulletin board. This would be the gift to the host school for allowing him to attend. Jack created a bulletin board about basketball, a unit at the time, in the middle school. It provided information pertaining to the history of the game, terms and definitions, outside opportunities for participation, skill-related information, and more!
