I have 13 years experience in elementary, middle school and high school physical education. For the last 6 years, I have advised and trained hundreds of classroom teachers, along with their classrooms.
I am very hands-on. My students learn through mimicking skills, verbal instruction, visual instruction/demonstrations, checking for understanding and exploratory action. Over the years, I have learned to teach in the positive. In other words, I try to stress WHAT IS EXPECTED, rather than what I don't want. I have found tremendous success with this mindset.
