2019-2020_08

Abstract

The purpose of this proposal is to eliminate PES 326 Kinetics from the physical education-teacher education major curriculum. This change will help our candidates complete their degree requirements within 4 years. Our candidates have been struggling with Seamless Transfer and the requirements of the Excelsior Scholarship to finish their degree within four years, especially our transfer students who constitute the largest population of our majors. Faculty in PETE examined our curriculum as well as the NYS Physical Education Content Standards and noted much of the content needed for State licensure is covered in other science based courses (Anatomy and Physiology, Exercise Physiology) as well as Physical Education methods courses (Elementary Physical Education, Secondary Physical Education, Elementary Activities, Curriculum Models, Elementary Student Teaching and Secondary Student Teaching) as well as content core classes (Motor Development and Motor Learning).
