Physical Literacy Enriched Teaching Games for Understanding
Ted Belanger
Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) is comprised of 4 sport categories (Target, Net & Wall, Invasion/Territory, and Fielding/Striking). This session will give the participant ideas and strategies for implementing aTGfU program into your school, team or program. This session will break down the4 TGfU categories, with the intention of broadening the understanding ofTGfU among teachers, coaches and children. Ultimately the goal of TGfU is to increase confidence, and competence and to further engage participants in physical activity and/or sport. The TGfU model is achieved through strategic and tactical gameplay; and purposeful offensive & defensive questioning. As confidence and competence increases within tactical gameplay, students are encouraged to apply their abilities to similar games and sports. This session is suited to anyone working with children and is a universal concept that can be transferred from one sport context to another.
Circus Arts Instruction in PE and Rec
Curt McKinnon and Bryan Vermeylen
Have you ever wanted to run away and join the circus? What if there was a way to promote physical literacy through the circus arts? No, not clown noses and big floppy shoes! Imagine introducing acrobatics, balancing, juggling,and aerials to increase physical literacy. Come check out how Stevenson-Britannia and Robert Browning have brought the circus to life for children.
Participants will get a brief overview of the National Circus School’s instructor course, a chance to try out some unique circus equipment and leave with some basic circus-themed activities. Circus arts instruction can effectively aid in the development of physical literacy in children. Providing a quality physical literacy experience, such as circus arts instruction, provides equitable levels of motor competence development for males and females, and assists with achieving the goal of physical literacy.
