Learning In, Through and About Movement in Secondary Physical Education

Attend the Contemporary Approaches to Middle School Physical Education workshop (listed above) and receive a copy of our newest resource included in your attendance fee. Click here for more information about this session.

This resource sets out to show what a strengths based and inquiry focused physical education program designed to encompass education in, through and about movement looks like. It demonstrates a break from the multi-activity program model framing sport as sport techniques to a program where movement is the stimulus experience for learning. Each of the sections of the resource are mapped to one of the achievement standards of the Australian Curriculum HPE Movement and Participation Strand. Together, the five sections cover the Movement and Participation Strand for Year 9/10. For more information on how to purchase a copy please click here.
