Law of Attraction – The True Philosophy Of Physical Education

Experiential Learning to me is the way to bring about success. The only ways to find out answers are through experience. It is imperative that every day, you have to go through a certain experience to make yourself better. Success is derived from failure. If I did not know what failure was, then how I could know how it felt to be successful? Whether it’s socially, cognitively, or psychomotor, you might fail more times than someone but you will continue to strive to be successful. Experiential learning comes from one’s past experiences into present success.

I have learned that there will be times where there will be a problem to solve among a group and people look to you for the answer because you have displayed leadership. Even though you might have no idea what the answer is, you will not show expressions that come off as “I can’t do it.” Sometimes you have to get uncomfortable to get comfortable and be put in a situation where people depend on your voice. you will that as a leader that in order to lead, you have to listen. A leader is not a single person giving orders. A leader makes the decision based on the groups’ thoughts. A leader has to the catalyst; the person knows when to start the fire, but also to put it out.

It is important to be focused and effective. It is imperative that kids understand the meaning behind your philosophy. The type of environment we live is where the teacher, coach, or facilitator has to accurate in every lesson in order to achieve the goals set out for the group. Understand that everyone moves at different speeds and comfort levels. It is your job as the teacher to analysis the make-up of each student and develops the characteristics into a better individual.

A successful program is where someone doesn’t need to write down notes to learn. I believe that’s the most effective way to be a quality leader; when you can have student’s or individuals learn through the mind, not their notes. The best lessons are taught about life are through communication. No one remembers a test that took where they learned something. Either though some might not think this, but a test would be harder if the student had to verbally say the answer to you. Putting answers on a paper does not solidify a student’s learning capabilities. Whenever would someone ask a question during a conversation and have someone write down the answer to them. Knowledge is based on verbal communication and interaction with someone. That’s makes a successful program.

Physical Education/coaches will teach kids how to apply situations to real life events. There are varieties of variables that coexist within a team/group. A class like physical education develops a group of students that might know each other become a unit to solve a problem. It is a program that teaches student’s about the true character of others but more importantly, this program teaches students to learn about themselves.

WHO DO STUDENTS REMEMBER THE MOST? Answer: Physical Educators. Unfortunately in schools, physical education is last on the list as importance but first on the list of fun things to do in school. Even though boys and girls might not enjoy doing yoga as a lesson, at the end of the day they know that it’s better than sitting in a class and learning about General Robert E Lee’s plan about the battle of irrelevant. They remember physical educators because

1. Student’s actually get to converse with their teacher during the lesson instead of sitting there and listening (interaction).

2. Students receive praise based on the ability of a motor skill (rewards).

3. There active and play sports (fun)

4. They stay awake in school (heart rate), and last

5. Physical Educators are the most approachable because they can’t communicate by a textbook or a power point. The only teachers a student is going to remember from grades K-12 outside of physical education are teachers that coached you or another sport, or gave you a recommendation, or gave you life advice, good-looking, or was the worst teacher of all time. If someone asked me to name my physical educators from K-12, I could tell you all of them or at least 10 of them in one breathe. Point is I find it amazing that physical education is low of totem pole when they are remembered the most and looked at the most by students. Fun is magic. When you are happy, people will smile. When you are nice, people gravitate. When fun, people are will follow you anywhere.
