In this course students will learn to identify the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development and movement principles and characteristics in the physical activity of children and adolescents. They will plan, structure and sequence inclusive and safe physical activity learning that engages children and adolescents. Students will analyse fundamental and specialised motor skills of children and adolescents to identify areas for improvement and provide corrective feedback and practice through a range of learning experiences.
Students will participate in a variety of movement experiences and provide timely and appropriate feedback about the learning of fundamental and specialised motor movement skills to others. They will learn to differentiate pedagogical strategies to encourage skill acquisition for children and adolescents with diverse developmental needs and learn how modifications can be made in movement programs to facilitate safe and inclusive learning environments for all participants.
