Instructional Ideas

  1. Using Human Kinetics Now, teachers can have students perform research on current topics in Physical Education. For example, a teacher could instruct students to locate and read an article or excerpt. Following, students could be directed to summarize and explain how they can use the information they learned from reading the article or excerpt. Finally, the teacher could require students to report their findings as a short research paper, an oral presentation, or by creating a presentation that incorporates the use of another app such as Prezi, Haiku Deck, or CloudOn.
  2. Using Human Kinetics Now, students can research a specific Fitness and Conditioning topic that interests them, such as stretching, conditioning, or nutrition. Next, students could read different articles and excerpts related to the topic and use these resources to create a plan for incorporating new concepts into fitness or nutritional routines. For example, a student could research information about stretching and then create a stretching regimen to be performed prior to lifting weights and/or running. Another example would be for students to research how to tweak their diets to include healthier eating habits. Finally, after having implemented their plan for a period of time (e.g., 6 weeks to 3 months), students can compose reports in which they reflect on the changes and comment about any differences they noticed in their health.
  3. Physical Education teachers can first create a Human Kinetics Now bulletin board. Next, they can create a weekly assignment in which each of their students must research one nutrition or fitness fact or idea found using the Human Kinetics Now app. Finally, students would be instructed to explain the fact or idea they found on a note card, which would be posted to the bulletin board. To add a twist, teachers could require students to use multiple colors or include an image on their note card. To add another twist, teachers could have students vote on the most interesting fact or idea, and that fact or idea could be moved to a designated “Did You Know” section of the bulletin board, where it would remain for an entire school year (or longer).
