This will be the fourth of four ACHPER SA one-day workshops focusing on thematic curriculum for Physical Education using the four game categories (Net &Wall Games, Invasion Games, Target Games and Striking and Fielding games) (Bunker and Thorpe, 1982). The fourth workshop in the series will explore the Striking & Fielding Game category. A thematic approach for 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.
This workshop will address the concepts of: Principles of play; movement concepts, designing games for purpose; transfer of understanding; deliberate practice and deliberate play for target games; and the use of questioning as the educative architecture that could be used to construct a thematic curriculum for primary or secondary PE.
Experienced teachers/coaches from two to three sports below will provide practical sessions on how they approach teaching the Striking & Fielding Games eg Baseball, Cricket and Softball
