Dr. Sharon Phillips: PE classes can reinforce Common Core lessons

NYS School Boards Association

This article, which appears on the website of the New York State School Boards Association, is about how concepts taught in K-12 math, physics or biology classes can be reinforced by Physical Education teachers. According to this report, the goal of preparing physical education teachers to incorporate ideas and content from other academic areas into their lessons and activities is not new. Dr. Phillips, assistant professor of health studies and kinesiology in the School of Education, is quoted as saying: “I think it’s fair to say that a majority of physical education teachers have already been trained in this, but it wasn’t called Common Core. It was called ‘interdisciplinary-type activities.’”
