ConnectedPE - Professional Development for Physical Educators


Episode 15 - Empowering Your Students using The Sports Education Model

September 21, 2016

In this episode of The ConnectedPE Podcast we discuss the popular Sports Education Model and how I structure the model within my PE Classrooms, walking you though each step of.. For those unfamiliar, The Sport Education or SEPEP model seeks to provide an authentic means for students to engage in Physical Education. It reflects the practices of social competitions outside of a school context while also working toward building a more student centred learning environment. Success using this model is achieved by giving teachers an opportunity to take a step back from the traditional ‘direct instruction’ method ultimately enabling students to guide their own learning with their peers.

These values are sought through team affiliation, festivity, responsibility, formal competition, competitiveness, reward and fun. To achieve this, the model drives students to take on roles & responsibilities that are outside the traditional boundaries of physical education. These roles can vary depending on a school’s resources, however, include anything from; umpiring, coaching, timekeeping, scoring, media teams, statisticians and much more.
