The course is designed to emphasize the importance of physical education for students of all abilities. The course examines the inclusion of children with disabilities in a physical activity setting. P.L. 94-142 and other legal mandates will be a major focus of the course. The specific topics covered in this class are aligned with the Core Teaching Standards: learning development, learning differences, learning environment, planning for instruction, instructional strategies, application if content, assessment, and ethical practice.
Elementary & Secondary Physical Educators, Coaches, Special Education teachers & Administrators.
You will be assigned weekly readings and assignments related to material that will be covered each week. Assignments will be provided in Moodle.
Assignments will be in the form of reflections, article review, disability fact sheets, IEP’s, case studies, experimental activities, and a final project.
The final project is designed to develop a fitness program for a student or students that you work with. In part, the project combines all the work you have completed during the course. The goal is for you to have a program that is useful for you during your teaching career and one that can be modified to meet the needs of a particular learner.
The course is a hybrid course. The weekly assignments will be through Moodle but we will also meet in person. We will meet at Castleton two days in July, one day in August, and again once your academic year starts.
