HESPĀ 153. Adapted Physical Education and Sport. 4 Units.

This course is designed to provide students with the theoretical and practical tools necessary to teach Physical Education (PE) and Sport across diverse settings. Students learn a wide range of teaching skills that facilitate their ability to create an inclusive learning environment in PE and Sport. Students explore a variety of adapted motor skills activities, federal/state legislative mandates and related polices, effective pedagogical and assessment strategies, classroom management skills, the use of constructive feedback and the development of appropriate student learning outcomes within diverse classrooms. Students undertake a number of peer-to-peer teaching episodes and apply principles learned in the classroom setting to real-world contexts. The course also encourages the students to engage in reflexive teaching practices, develop inclusive motor skill instruction lessons sensitive to diversity issues and maximize student involvement and enjoyment in PE and Sport. Fieldwork requires clearance for local school districts (clear LiveScan fingerprint screening and negative TB test results). (DVSY)
