All a P.E. teacher needs is a whistle, a stopwatch and a look

P.E. teachers know of this web site but a lot of coaches and parents probably don’t. It’s got a lot of information on teaching physical education that can be adapted by a wide assortment of specialists.

For instance, in the section labeled lessons, there are teaching plans for a wide variety of sports including; basketball, baseball, lacrosse, soccer, swimming and track and field. If you’re coaching one of these sports then you’ll get some ideas.

For parents, in the same section, there are articles on teaching inline skating, locomotor movements, paddle sports, and juggling. These are all activities that kids need and love to do. If you’re not sure how to teach it, you probably could find out here.

I took a quick look at the basketball section. There were eleven lessons ranging in grade levels from third to fifth and sixth to eighth. Some of the lessons are remedial or for teachers who have little experience in the game but some are fairly detailed with good descriptions and explanations.

This is a huge site with lots of areas to explore. There are sections on assessments, adapted P.E. (my specialty), pre-k, and there are videos and other instructional materials.

Check it out, then come back and let us know what you learned.
