Presentation Transcript
Teachers employing the Skill Theme approach focus on helping children become skillful movers so that they can successfully participate in physical activities.
  • The primary goal is to develop competency in basic motor skills and confidence to try and enjoy a variety of sports and physical activities
movement analysis framework
Movement Analysis Framework
  • Focus
    • Skill acquisition
    • Movement control principles
  • Major components
    • Space awareness
    • Effort
    • Relationships
The “Wheel” shows how the Skill Themes and Movement Concepts can work together and are interrelated
  • Early elementary focus should be on addressing movement concepts while practicing skill themes
  • Later elementary years focus should be on the learning and quality of the skill themes themselves
movement concepts in physical education
Movement Concepts in Physical Education

Space Awareness (where the body moves)• Location• Directions• Levels• Pathways• Extensions

Effort (how the body moves) • Time• Force• Flow

Relationships(with whom, or what the body moves) • Of body parts• With objects and/or people• With people

teaching by skill themes
Teaching by Skill Themes
  • Developmental levels:
    • precontrol, control,utilization,proficiency
  • Teach with movement concepts or skill themes
  • Combine skills and concepts

Progression Spiral
Progression Spiral graphically represents:
    • How content progresses from easiest to hardest, less to more complex
    • Progression from pre-control to proficiency level
    • How people may vary in their level of performance on a specific skill theme according to the context of the task.
