Unit of study_

Personal Development, Health and PE K-6 - EDMT5536

Year - 2018

In this unit you will be introduced to the learning area: Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE). The unit will develop students' understanding of what it is to be a teacher within many Health and Physical Education (HPE) contexts. To do this, the unit will examine the current NSW Board of Studies requirements regarding K-6 PDHPE and the emerging F-6 Health and Physical Education (HPE) Australian Curriculum. Through an examination of the K-6 syllabi, modules, support documents and the Health Promoting Schools framework, students will develop the necessary skills to design and implement lesson plans in the primary school learning environment. To help guide this process, students will be expected to reflect upon the teaching professional experience placement (embedded in the middle of this unit). As well as providing students with the opportunity to plan and teach in PDHPE, this unit of study also asks students to practise creating learning links between strands in PDHPE, other KLA and the Health Promoting School Framework.
