PRACTICAL SESSIONS WITH RICK BALDOCK FROM ACHPER SA

Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility through Physical Education Rick Baldock, ACHPER (SA) (Practical) 60 mins

The Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility (TPSR) is a curriculum and instructional model developed by Don Hellison, which is being increasingly used by physical education teachers and some coaches throughout the Australia and USA. It has proven effective in school-based physical education and also in after-school and community-based programs. This session will demonstrate the practical effectiveness of the model and its positive and unique approach to empowering students which makes it appealing to practitioners wanting to improve students participation in PE and school.

 

Teaching Primary School PE using a Game Sense approach Rick Baldock, ACHPER (SA) (Practical) 60 mins

Game Sense enables the Primary Physical Education teacher to teach a range of content from FMS to individual sports as well as thematic approaches based on four Game Categories (Invasion, Net & Wall, Striking & Fielding and Target Games). This workshop will enable you to apply this model of practice to enable the development of thinking players through questioning, learning in context through games, and game modification to represent tactical and technical game elements as complimentary aspects of the game.
