Playworks focuses on play, movement, physicality and physical activity as its main themes.
Student teachers develop a deeper understanding of how to infuse a greater awareness of physical vitality and knowledge of physical literacy into their teaching practices.
Secondary student teachers who hold a major or minor in PE in addition to another teachable subject will be placed in this module. If space permits, secondary student teachers who have been accepted to teach in other disciplines and have a keen interest in physical literacy may be placed in this module.
Elementary student teachers in Playworks will focus on ways to infuse physicality as a cross-curricular approach to teaching and learning.
School experiences and practica will take place throughout the Lower Mainland.
