Standard 1: Scientific and Theoretical Knowledge.
Physical education teacher candidates know and apply discipline-specific scientific and theoretical concepts critical to the development of physically educated individuals.
In his EXS 387 Biomechanics class, Rich used the dartfish program to apply biomechanical concepts to videos of three students. This artifact shows the process and data which Rich collected in order to show his understanding of Biomechanical principles. This artifact is important to Rich as a teacher because it will help him be able to correct skillful movement errors which the eye alone cannot see. View Rich's Project by clicking the link below.
Dartfish Final Presentation
In his PED 201 motor development class Rich was able to work with young students at the Cortland Homer Afterschool Mentorship Program (CHAMP). Here he developed lessons and completed labs that would help him better understand the development of a child. This artifact shows Rich’s understanding of motor development through object control. This artifact is important to Rich because it will help him develop lesson plans that are more developmentally appropriate for the students he is teaching.
