Motor Development Videos & Concert Spring 2012

In PED 201 - Motor Development (with Assistant Professor Stephen Yang), students are given this project assignment to produce a representation of their understanding for a particular chapter. Each group must complete a musical video/song with lyrics appropriately explaining/teaching the audience the most important concepts. They will also have to perform in front of an audience which gives them another opportunity to show their commitment to communication and performing with passion. All part of becoming a Rockstar PE Teacher 

Come to Poolside next Wednesday, April 11, 2012 at 12:30pm to catch this semester's latest and greatest performances.  Come out to support this semester's groups and perhaps catch some repeat performances from previous groups.

Past videos and performances.
