Teaching games students love and using them in multiple units and increasing exercise
In many of the PE classes I have it is our goal and almost always met that within an 55 minutes you can achieve 5000 steps. How do you take your typical and nontypical games and use them in multiple units so that teaching time is minimized and activity time is maximized. As a teacher it is your job to plan well and teach less so that your classes game time is as long as possible. You must find ways to take your scope and sequence and incorporate skills into your games, remember you are not a students traveling sport coach, but are their physical education teacher. Teachers will see anywhere between 3 and 7 games that they can immediately implement into their curriculum and see students truly enjoy high level of activity while still being successful.

I'll take a long-view look at K-12 physical education by discussing the barriers to being physically active in adulthood and then discuss how K-12 physical educators can help remove these barriers. I'll pose and discuss questions such as: How can we disrupt the current system and the dogmatic pedagogy and beliefs that pervade education? Is online physical education a good thing? How can creativity and entrepreneurship help revolutionize physical education (and education in general)? I'll attempt to provide some actionable ideas but really want everyone to leave with more questions in order to keep the conversation going.
