PowerPoint Presentation:

Why did I choose these? Who influenced me? Teachers- Being at a co-ed school, in co-ed classes it was always compulsory to participate once or twice a week in Sport Classes. Both male and female dominated sports were apart of the involvement in this class. Teachers encouraged the participation of all students in all sports that were played. Teachers especially encouraged the girls in the male dominated sports and the boys in the female dominated sports. Wide variety- Living in a larger city of the Central West having the availability to different sports was never a problem. Both female and male dominated sports were equally available on the weekends especially. Family support- Having a supportive family base both my parents encouraged any and every sporting opportunity that was available to me. They pushed myself and my two younger sisters to be as active as we could when it came to sport. This helped us to create a healthy and positive lifestyle and still helps us today.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Dedication for sport- As an adolescent I had a love and passion for swimming (training and competitions). I was dedicated to improve in every single way I could. I started my day at 5am everyday throughout my senior primary and junior high school years. I would train from 5:30 am until 7:30am, go home, get ready for school, go to school, come home from school, go to swimming training again from 4pm-6:30pm, go home, have dinner, shower and then to bed. This was my daily routine for nearly 7 years Monday to Saturday and competing competitively on Sundays. I was also one of three students from school that would make C.I.S every year to compete against other private schools. Sadly I gave up swimming as I grew older, got a job and concentrated more on my school studies.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Did your choice of Physical Activity change with age? Why? I believe for me it did. - I definitely became less active as I got older. - I became more independent - I got a well paying job which meant I could not participate in weekend hockey in the winter and club swimming carnivals that were run every weekend. - I became involved in many more relationships with friends. My priority was to hang out with them. - Trying to balance a heavy work and school load - Other social commitments.

PowerPoint Presentation:

What are my current attitudes & feelings associated with Physical Education, Health and Wellbeing? I believe that PDHPE and being physically active is crucial for children growing up and developing in the 21 st century as obesity levels are increasing rapidly and school sport is not as encouraged as it was when I was growing up in school and my home life. Children should be taught from a young age the importance of being physically active, having a healthy lifestyle and that any type of physical activity is good. I have a passionate stance on the importance of physical education and I believe that all PDHPE teachers should have a firm attitude on the importance of introducing physical activity from an early age and encouraging it both at school and to parents for children to participate in a sport on the weekends. It is the PDHPE teachers that have such a strong ability to give children a strong and meaningful perspective of just how important it is to be physically healthy so prevent illnesses later in life that cause diabetes, heart conditions, obesity and cancer. It is also important to be a role model for the children I teach by eating healthy in front of them, involving myself in daily physical activity, wearing a hat and drinking water.

PowerPoint Presentation:

How will this affect my teaching? - As someone who has such a strong stance on the importance of implementing physical activity into the K-6 curriculum, I will make time in my timetable daily by always finding time for some type of physical activity whether it be playing a short but active game or going for a run around the oval or playground. I believe that PDHPE is just as important as any other KLA areas including Maths and English. I will make sure that children are aware of the importance of healthy living and why physical education and activity can have a positive influence on your lifestyle and choices made.

PDHPE and Educational Settings - My Position:

PDHPE and Educational Settings - My Position

PowerPoint Presentation:

Value of PDHPE for Primary Education Setting PDHPE encourages children to participate from a young age PDHPE provides children with skills that will help them throughout their life. It is the foundation for healthy life choices children will make in the present and future Promotes active learning in school classrooms encourages an understanding and valuing of self and others emphasises informed decision making leading to effective and responsible action

PowerPoint Presentation:

This syllabus makes a unique contribution to the total school curriculum in that it is directly concerned with supporting the development of the student as a whole person. Its implementation has the potential to contribute to improved and ongoing quality of life for all individuals within the community. This syllabus is based on a broad notion of health that encompasses all aspects of an individual’s wellbeing, inclusive of social, mental, physical and spiritual health. It is concerned with developing in students the knowledge and understanding, skills, values and attitudes that will enable them to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. It also provides schools with a curriculum framework for teaching and learning related to the health priorities for young people of drug education, fitness and physical activity, child protection and nutrition. While the syllabus has a clear focus on promoting better health for all, it is acknowledged that not all students enjoy the same opportunities in this regard. Social, economic, environmental and political factors are key determinants of health status. Health inequities may be linked to such factors as race, ethnicity, class, gender, disability, sexuality and age. Sensitivity to the circumstances of individual students is essential in designing appropriate PDHPE programs. It is important for teachers, parents and students to understand that improving health is the responsibility of all members of society. (K-6 PDHPE Board of Studies Syllabus, NSW, 2006)

PowerPoint Presentation:

If you were to compare yourself to the PDHPE Educator in the previous section, how would you compare? As an active individual who enjoys physical activity and being healthy I believe that I would be an superior role model for students. However, my lack of understanding for the K-6 PDHPE Syllabus and other KLA areas would impact on my ability to teach children about this area of learning. Throughout my course it is my aim to increase my knowledge and ability to implement the PDHPE syllabus in a classroom and outside of the classroom. I believe it is important for children to learn about being physically active early in life to emphasise the importance of it later in life. My love and passion for sport

PowerPoint Presentation:

How do you feel about teaching PE in the K-6 context? I am nervous by the fact that I lack confidence as I do not have the in-depth knowledge of the syllabus and content. However, it is my aim by the end of my degree and the conclusion of this subject to gain a deeper and more educated understanding of this area of teaching. I will aim to do this to provide my students the best possible PDHPE experience they can receive. I feel that I am encouraged to make a difference in the young minds of the children I will be teaching to better tomorrows society, health and awareness. I am also excited due to my love and passion for sport and my willingness to want to make a difference in young children's lives by sharing my knowledge, experiences and healthy life style habits.

PowerPoint Presentation:

What do you believe teachers need to know and be able to do to confidently teach PDHPE? Teachers need to know the cultural context and background of their students. Their are many controversial issues taught in PDHPE that some students may be sensitive towards (family breakdowns). Teachers need to be able to implement a quality PDHPE learning program to ensure children develop the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes needed to lead to a healthy lifestyle. PDHPE Teachers need to be adaptable and cater for a range of different learners within the classroom.
