Tuesday of this week we had a PE Debate in my PED 201 Class at SUNY Cortland. The topic that was being covered was what curriculum emphasis is more appropriate for the students in New York State. The three different curriculum's that were being represented were skill themes advocates, Fitness Education Fanatics, and Sticks in Sports and PE Enthusiasts. I was on the Skill Theme advocates team. Our team believe that PE curriculum's should be based around teaching the student locomotor skills. Without learning locomotor skill children do not have the basic skills to play sports. The overall Debate was a great experience it was a great way to should us, future PE teachers, what could happen if you have to fight for what you believe in. I believe this experience will help us all grow strong in becoming the best PE teacher we can be. Physical Education is the future and we need to make sure as teacher we not the proper ways to fight in what we believe in.
