|Subject Overview:||This subject aims to advance teacher candidates’ understanding of the development of the Physical Education curriculum, by raising their awareness of historical and political factors that have influenced the structure of the PE curriculum and its enactment in schools. Teacher candidates will be expected to critically reflect on literature covering a range of contemporary issues based on the notion of difference in physical education. Through group discussion in workshops and investigation in the school setting, teacher candidates will suggest how these issues might contribute to the development of programs which will cater for the diversity of ability and culture evident in current school populations. In conjunction with this, teacher candidates will engage in an in-depth exploration of the VCE study design and develop a range of student-centered teaching strategies and assessment materials for VCE. These materials will cater for students’ interests and, where possible, be enhanced by the integration of new technologies.|
