This unit is the third of four examing pedagogical practice and content in physical education. The four units move pre-service teachers along a spectrum of styles for teaching physical education, ranging from direct to indirect styles. This unit specifically focuses on the year 7-10 PDHPE syllabus and future Australian curriculum areas of minor and lead-up games; challenge and adventure activities (orienteering and rock climbing); major net/wall games and sports (volleyball, tennis, badminton and squash); styles of dance; and health related activities (pilates, yoga and crossfit). Skills will be developed and rehearsed in practical workshops allowing students to acquire a level of mastery and to transfer the learning theory into practice in a supportive environment through both peer and lecturer feedback. The content and assessment within this unit is informed by the Community Engagement and Service Learning Program, and students will be required to reflect on and utilize their service learning experience to complete this unit.
