Contemporary Models of Practice for Teaching PE


Contemporary Models of Practice for Teaching PE
Workshop 1 Teaching Personal & Social Responsibility

This is the first of three ACHPER SA one-day workshops focusing on models of practice that use student centred approaches to support student learning in Physical Education. This first workshop will explore the Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility through Physical Activity (TPSR) curriculum and instructional model developed by Don Hellison. This model of practice has been used by physical education teachers, coaches and youth workers throughout the USA, Spain, South America, New Zealand and more recently Australia. It has proven effective in school-based physical education and also in after-school and community-based programs.  The practical effectiveness of the model and its unique approach to empowering students makes it appealing to many practitioners.
This workshop will address the TPSR 5 outcomes and values that underpin this model as well as lesson structures and assessment of student learning.
TPSR in Physical Education is consistent with aspects of the AC: HPE Achievement Standards and the key ideas of a strengths based, educative focussed Physical Education curriculum promoting education in, through and about movement. More importantly educators found that once TPSR has been successfully taught and demonstrated, classes ran more smoothly and there was less need for classroom management work as the students increasingly self managed.
Experienced teachers will present on how they approach TPSR in their schools and share with you their successes and challenges.
