This page contains information specific to MSSU's Kinesiology 370 course - School Health Education

KINE 0370 - School Health Education (Writing Intensive) - provides the background information and skills teachers need to implement comprehensive school health education at the grade levels in which they are certified. Prerequisite: Educ 329

EDUC 0329 - Pedagogical Theory, Methods and Practices -examines the theoretical basis for the decision making model of the teacher education program. Provides the methodological basis for making pedagogical decisions concerning lesson design, identification of learning styles, and assessment techniques. Microteaching provides an opportunity to practice methods and techniques for teaching. Thirty-two hours of junior internship in the elementary, middle, and secondary school classroom provides an opportunity to refine theory into practical applications.

Strategies to Assist Kinesthetic Learners

  • Provide plenty of time for students to practice what is being taught.
  • After 20 minutes of lecture time allow 5 minutes of practice or group discussion before continuing to lecture. This will allow kinesthetic learners to move around, practice or discuss what they have learned.
  • During class sessions have hands on material available for the kinesthetic learner to engage themselves in the learning process.
  • Highlighters, flashcards, markers and paper will provide the students with an opportunity to become physically engaged in the learning process.
  • Taking notes and drawing diagrams are another excellent physical activity that involves movement and encourages a kinesthetic learner to recall and retain information that is being taught.
  • If there are only one or two kinesthetic learners in the room the instructor can assign one student to take notes for the class and ask the other student to write down questions that come up during the lecture. At the end of the lecture the class can review key points or notes taken and use the questions as a method of further class discussion.
  • Engage the class in role plays, group presentations, class discussion and debates.
