    Unpacking Student Motivation In Physical Education

    Unpacking Student Motivation In Physical Education

    “If you don’t do the work, then you don’t get the grade.”

    The saddest part about that cringe-worthy sentence is that I’ve said it to students before. Early on in my career, I had no idea how to motivate students in my teaching. I’d do my best to plan fun lessons, but I’d resort to a “carrots and sticks” approach when dealing with unmotivated students.

    The problem is that controlling students with rewards and consequences only leads to higher levels of anxiety, boredom, or alienation.

    It robs students of their natural love for learning and the feelings of joy, enthusiasm, and interest that once came with it. Knowing this impact, how can we best support student motivation in our lessons?

    Self-determination theory looks at human motivation and tries to understand the factors that push or prevent people from wanting to learn and grow. The theory argues that intrinsic motivation is sustained by satisfying three basic psychological needs: autonomy, competence, and relatedness.

    In this episode, we will take a look at how we can use self-determination theory to increase student motivation in P.E.

    I did my best to tie theory to practice and I'm convinced that you will have a few new strategies in your tool belt after listening to this podcast.

    Thanks for tuning in! Happy Teaching!

    #PEChat Radio Hour: Social & Emotional Learning with Karl Mercuri

    #PEChat Radio Hour: Social & Emotional Learning with Karl Mercuri

    Here is the recording from our first-ever #PEChat Radio Hour! For this episode, I connected with Karl Mercuri on Twitter Spaces.

    Karl Mercuri is the Social and Emotional Learning Coordinator at The Priory School and a private SEL consultant across schools here in the Greater Montreal area. Originally from Melbourne (Australia), Karl actually started his career teaching physical education there. Earlier in his career, Karl was a facilitator of Kidsmatter (now Be You): a Mental Health and Wellbeing Framework that is implemented throughout Australia. He has dedicated his career to supporting effective social and emotional learning in schools. From studying challenging behaviours, to being trained in positive psychology, to completing courses in emotional intelligence and - more recently - training with The Mehrit Centre in self-regulation: Karl has an absolute wealth of knowledge and experience that he can share with the world and I am so excited to have him on the show.

    🙏 A huge thank you to Karl for taking time out of his schedule to help us better understand the role of social and emotional learning. Also, thank you to Dan (@gym_stover) for getting involved during our Q&A session!

    Our First #PhysEd Pub PD: A #PEChat Recap

    Our First #PhysEd Pub PD: A #PEChat Recap

    This is a recap of our latest #pechat that took place on Twitter Spaces!

    For this #pechat, we hosted a #PhysEd Pub PD: a Space where physical education teachers get to hang out, take turns sharing ideas, and learning from each other. 

    Shout out to all of the awesome teachers who stepped up and shared an idea during the chat:

    • Nathan (@PENathan) who shared an idea on how we can highlight physical activity opportunities that exist our communities.

    • Travis (@NorthShoreVB) who shared a game called "Softi Keep Away" that his students love.

    • Karl (@Karl_Mercuri) who shared insight into the value of performing emotional check-ins throughout your lessons.

    • Dan (@gym_stover) who shared a great way to strengthen relationships at the start of each lesson.

    • Kate (@KateCoxPE) who shared how she has focused on infusing her lessons and activities with fun!

    • Jo (@LovePhyEd) who shared some insight into her adventure education lessons and talked about meaningful PE.

    This was the very first #PhysEd Pub PD that I've hosted as a #pechat and I already can't wait until the next one! I hope that you can join us for the live show on Twitter Spaces. Be sure to follow me on Twitter at @phys_educator to be able to join in!

    🥳 Happy Teaching!

    Student Feedback In Physical Education

    Student Feedback In Physical Education

    For years now, I've wanted to have my students assess my teaching in order to help me set better goals for my professional development. This past June, in a year that involved a huge amount of personal and professional changes in my life that I feared had an negative impact on my teaching, I had my grade six class anonymously assess my teaching. Listen in to learn more about what they were asked, how they answered, and where I'll be going from here!

    #PEChat Radio Hour: How To Support A Growth Mindset In Physical Education

    #PEChat Radio Hour: How To Support A Growth Mindset In Physical Education

    Here is the recording from our latest #PEChat Radio Hour! For this episode, #PEChat host Elyse Loughlin interviews Joey Feith (that's me!) on Twitter Spaces.

    This episode focuses on what physical educators can do to help support the development of a growth mindset within their students. In the episode, we explore:

    • The differences between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset.

    • How mindsets affect our meaning systems and behaviours.

    • How teachers can design physical environments that support a growth mindset.

    • How peer attitudes and behaviours affect the development of a growth mindset.

    • The different ways that teachers communicate their belief in a growth mindset and how that can affect students.

    • Simple, evidence-based growth mindset interventions that work.

    Thanks for tuning in! Happy Teaching!

Episode 6 spot on!

Episode six is spot on! Many HPE teachers feel irrelevant and in my opinion it’s because we don’t focus on being great teachers first. All to often our profession focuses on the “game” and not meaningful learning. When we can show meaningful learning is taking we will move from irrelevant to respected! Most importantly our students will be getting what they need!
