Physical and Health Education: More than Sweating

Physical and Health Education: More than Sweating

Traditionally, Physical Education is characterized by being a subject in which students run, jump, pull, chase, catch, and sweat, among many other actions. Nonetheless, in the MYP, this subject is known as Physical and Health education because Physical and Health Education (PHE) focuses on both learning about and learning through physical activity. Both dimensions help students to develop approaches to learning (ATL) skills across the curriculum.

A good way to understand the nature of PHE in the MYP, it is worth wondering: How can we use the effectiveness of imagination to give students meaningful experiences playing games and practicing skills? The answer to this questions will hopefully reveal the many shapes in which learning in PHE in the MYP occur.

Currently, grades 9 and 10 students are working on their Volleyball unit. Nonetheless, this unit is not just about the sport. Besides learning about strategies for playing the sport successfully, students are also analyzing a series of videos in which they can see experts playing in order to plan their performance (criterion B), and then put it into practice (criterion C), so that they can reflect on how effectively they put into practice the strategies they learned from experts. What is more, they are recording their performance, and are assessing all the elements that need to be taken into account to play the sport safely and with sophistication. Thus, in order to accomplish their goal, students are integrating technology by filming and editing their performance videos in order to analyze and present their evidence of learning.



在传统意义上,体育课是一个学生通过跑步,蹦 跳,拉拽,追逐,抓和出汗等一系列活动的课 程。

尽管如此,在 MYP 中这门课程被称为体育与健康 教育 ,体育健康教育(PHE)专注于学习和应用体育 活动。两个方面都帮助学生通过课程提高学习方 法(ATL)的技能。

MYP 阶段是一个很好的理解 PHE 学习方法,值得 惊奇的是:我们如何利用想象力的有效性给学生 提供一些有意义的游戏和练习技巧。这个问题的 答案希望可以显示出在 MYP 的 PHE 的学习中的 多个方面。

最近,九、十年级的学生正在进行他们排球这一 单元学习。但是,这个单元不仅仅是关于运动 的。除了学习如何打排球的技能之外,学生还在 分析一系列的视频,他们可以通过这些视频了解 到专家们如何制定他们表演(标准 B)计划,然后学 生会在实际应用中进行实践(标准 C),这样可以反 映出他们如何有效的将从专家处学到的策略运用 到实践当中。而且,他们会录制他们的表现,并 且评估所有需要考虑的因素,以安全稳妥的进行 这项运动。

체육과 건강 교육: 땀을 흘리는 것뿐만이 아니다

전통적으로, 체육은 많은 다른 행동들 중에서 학생들이 뛰고, 점프하고, 당기고, 추격하고, 잡고, 땀을 흘리는 과목으로 특정 지어진다.

그러나, MYP 에서는, 이 주제는 물리학과 보건 교육(PHE)이 신체적인 활동을 통해 배우고 그것에 초점을 맞추고 있기 때문에 신체 건강 교육으로 알려져 있다. 두 분야는 학생들이 교육과정 전반에 걸쳐 배우는 기술(ATL)을 발달하는 방법을 습득하는 데 도움이 된다.
