Thanks to my friend and colleague @marinagijzen for posting, on Twitter, an excellent video today about the 5 keys to social and emotional learning. Although the video is not PE specific in nature, after watching it, I could make immediate connections to how social and emotional learning play pivotal roles in quality #physed classes.
When we look at how often students are required to work together during PE time, social and emotional learning should be addressed whenever possible. There are numerous ways to address the following 5 keys to social and emotional learning in PE classes. As a PE teacher, how do you address these key areas? Would love to hear your thoughts.
What place in PE do you see these 5 key areas fitting? Does focusing on these 5 key areas enhance the quality of our PE programs or water them down? Addressing these areas, in my opinion, requires collaboration with classroom teachers and must be thought about well ahead of time when planning. Thanks Marina Gijzen for stimulating some much needed reflection and thought on my part in regards to how I can better address these areas in my PE classes. Please see video below to know more about the 5 keys to social and emotional learning.
