The literature addressing the need to make physical education experiences both meaningful and motivating has been around for decades. That is, in theory, we know the needs of students to help guide them on a journey of lifetime physical activity. However, translating that theory into teacher practice does not seem to be as prevalent. The purpose of this session is to first provide attendees with an overview of the motivation and meaningfulness while using six key constructs associated with both bodies of literature. Next, a majority of the time will be spent sharing and discussing strategies that can be implemented in every physical education lesson to be sure to make student experiences both meaningful and motivating. Come share, learn, and take-home teaching practices you can use during your next lesson.
