The PE Playbook – May 2017 Edition

Welcome to the May 2017 Edition of the PE Playbook. The PE Playbook is a review of blog posts over the past month that are specific to Physical Education or Youth Sport. Its about bringing these blog posts into a format that is easy to find, use and share. Hopefully this will result in more PE Teachers (and others) reading them and engaging with them. If you have any feedback about the presentation or content of the PE Playbook then please let me know in the comments section of this post or via @ImSporticusPrevious Editions of the PE Playbook can be found here.

Nate Babcock is a Elementary Physical Education in California and has been writing recently on Medium and has been in fine form. His style can be described as a ‘steam of consciousness’ and  Movement Educates exemplifies this with his thoughts about the educative benefits of movement. A Little About My Love/Hate Relationship with Physical Literacy explores Nate’s thoughts on what he considers are both the strengths and the weaknesses for teachers embracing physical literacy and the legitimate outcomes for PE. In Healthy? For Whom? we are challenged to reconsider how we might define health, through a moral and ethical lens and Nate keeps on challenging preconceptions Where Does Physical Education BEGIN?. Nate is also a big advocate of a profession of critical thinkers and his piece on human target games within the curriculum There is a Place for Human Target Games in PE, Censorship is not the Answer demonstrates this. If you enjoyed his thinking and writing he also blogs at EmanciPLAYtion
