Cooperative learning in PE

December 12, 2012

Loved this post by Lee Garrett on using Kagan’s cooperative learning structures in PE. His use of games like Numbered Heads Together and Round Robin is so unique and will not only help any teacher better assess student learning in PE, but potentially help them think about teaching differently, in general.

For more on this, you have to see Lee’s “about me” tab on the blog where he talks about his transformation in classroom philosophy. It blew me away as someone who struggled much of the time in PE. I wish my PE teachers had this sort of ideology (e.g., teaching growth mindset). Share these videos with your PE teachers or team and see if using these structures can work in your school.
