Physical Education: Keeping Children Active
Teaching skills to a variety of individuals is a fundamental component of the PE program. Our students are encouraged to build strong relationships in the schools as educators of health and physical activity.
Essential to this process is establishing strong relationships with our cooperating teachers, program coordinators and other individuals in the community who can assist our students in gaining the practical experiences necessary for success. Some of these include:
Collaboration with Northeast Passage: We work closely with Northeast Passage, both as a resource for equipment and services and to expose students to options when acting as consultants and educators in their capacity as professionals.
Outside groups: We have established relationships with groups of individuals who come into New Hampshire as a practice lab for our students. Below is a list of the groups:
- Child Study Development Center: Weekly visits to New Hampshire Hall during the fall semester. Students in KIN 610 develop and instruct movement lessons.
- Great Bay Services: A non-profit organization dedicated to assisting people with developmental disabilities: Groups of 15 individuals come for three or four visits during KIN 781. Students in the class develop and instruct age-appropriate activities with modifications that accommodate a variety of skills and abilities.
