Sometimes I think there is so much focus on Math, Science, Reading, and Writing that I wonder if we sometimes forget about the other subjects. Especially in the US, where there is so much testing focused in these areas, the other stuff often feels like ‘extra’. Along the same lines, much of the professional development out there seems geared more towards teachers of these types of classroom subjects, leaving things like the arts and physical education out. The handy infographic below addresses the idea of professional development specifically for physical education teachers. Whether you’re a PE teacher or you know one, it contains some good information.
Have you participated in professional development modules specifically geared towards teachers of your particular subject? Did you find it more useful than ‘general’ professional development?
