Syllabus

In this unit students critically analyse pedagogies and methods of physical activity delivery. This involves investigating models/ approaches that are associated with quality delivery for skill acquisition, game strategies and transfer of understanding through minor games and modified sports. Approaches include fundamental motor skills, Sport Education Model, teaching games for understanding and game sense. Students identify the model/ approach purpose, strengths, weaknesses and possibilities within various contexts and across a range of movement experiences. Students are encouraged to critique using technical, ethical, physiological, social and psychological lenses using a sociocultural approach. This enables students to appreciate how such models and approaches support participant learning, how aspects can be selected to support differentiation and how to plan and deliver activities with challenging learning goals in a safe, structured and sequential way.
