About this Unit
The unit will examine and model effective contemporary classroom practice to develop students’ pedagogical content knowledge in the teaching of Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE). The unit will provide opportunities to engage with teaching PDHPE across health and practical skills strands in years 7-10. The specifics of the relevant NSW Education Standards Authority Years 7-10 Syllabus and links with the K-6 curriculum will be analysed and critiqued as will current Australian and NSW educational/curriculum policies and priorities. Emphasis will be placed on principles such as games-sense theory that inform PDHPE teaching. This unit will develop current and applied skills in innovative lesson and unit planning, choose relevant data and contexts to create authentic assessment tasks and apply consistent feedback for student learning. Opportunities for investigation and discussion of current research particularly related to the development of applied and health based learning will be presented.
