Pursuing physical education outcomes through Sport Education

Abstract

The teaching of sport and sport-related games are integral components of Australian physical education programs. The question confronting teachers of physical education is not whether sport is a component of physical education but why particular pedagogical models should guide the construction of curricula and the enactment of teaching. We argue that the answer is that models such as the Sport Education model facilitate a more authentic, educationally meaningful and equitable learning of sport within physical education. To support this argument, we explain how the Sport Education model delivers the tenets of Teaching for Effective Learning (TfEL) and how it provides for Key Ideas and capabilities of the Australian HPE Curriculum. We conclude by suggesting Sport Education as a curriculum connector for authentic middle schooling pedagogy.
