What if physical education was about inviting young people into a story and living that story through the school year? This is an approach that coach and teacher Jim Harte developed in his long career as a PE teacher. The story is lived through in songs (musical learning) and a performance that finishes the school year.
In this episode, Jim Harte reflects on his long career in teaching and coaching young people, the meaning he has found in his own career, and how his thinking and practice in physical education has evolved over the years.
Jim has recently retired but continues to be active for example via his YouTube channel that includes resources (tips, interviews, etc.) for students, players and coaches. You can follow Jim on Twitter @Msccamp
