You may of heard of models such as Cooperative Learning, Sport Education, Teaching Games for Understanding, and Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility. This VLOG considers the bigger idea surrounding these models, a models-based approach. A models-based approach is a curriculum or program of study organised around these models rather than, for example, activities. What a models-based approach does is it allows physical education to exist in a number of forms and meet the broad ranging learning outcomes of the subject: sport, competition, tactics, social development, etc etc.. My question to you after watching this VLOG is to consider, would you organise your curriculum or program of study around different models, why? and what models would you choose.
