Partners in PE (S)
In this program Peer Tutors will be paired with students with special needs in a specially designed physical education class. This program will give regular education students the opportunities for hands on experiences in the teaching process. They will learn more about individual learning styles and knowledge of various disabilities. Expectations for Peer Tutors include assisting student athletes with special needs as well as the physical education teachers, blogging reflections about their experiences on Canvas, and following special education teachers’ support and tips about working with their special education partner. Regular education students will also be given a final exam testing their knowledge on topics discussed in class, including disabilities, sport adaptations, and the athletes. Peer Tutors will also be responsible for helping to plan and conduct some extra-curricular (outside of the school day) opportunities for their athletes with special needs.
