Most of us have horror stories to tell from our experiences in High School Gym Class. But physical education is changing, adapting to the students of today.
The days of "dodgeball" might not be entirely over - but today's gym class is tangibly different from the past. Physical Education teachers are focusing on the individual trying to develop good excercise habits, good self esteem, and life skills they can use when school is over.
Gym teachers also have to cope with a student body that is more obese than ever before. Today, where we live, a discussion of new trends in physical education. We'd like you to join the conversation about how to keep kids active.
We'll also explore a program that melds science and athletics, teaching important classroom skills on the soccer field and basketball court.
