    PHED 680 - Culturally Relevant Pedagogy in Physical Education


    This course focuses on understanding the three main tenets of culturally relevant pedagogy as detailed by Gloria Ladson-Billings (1995), and how to apply them within physical education contexts, either as an educator or teacher-educator. Assumptions which underpin the course are that physical education has historically enacted a colorblind perspective when it comes to invisible or unspoken issues of racial inequity embedded within the field. Additionally, this course operates from the assumption that many teachers, and in particular, white teachers, are often unaware of the need for culturally relevant pedagogies and instead maintain Eurocentric pedagogies which privilege whiteness while simultaneously positioning racial and ethnic minorities as “other.” Therefore, this course will aim to disrupt the framework of whiteness from which physical education is often constructed towards deeper and more nuanced understandings of culturally relevant pedagogies. Informed by literature on the topic, students will center the multiple ways of knowing that emerge from their determinations of culturally relevant pedagogy in order to apply this knowledge in work towards more equitable and inclusive physical education contexts and to better meet the needs of a diverse student population, including English Learners.

    To receive academic credit for athletics involvement the student athlete must have participated on a varsity or sub-varsity team.  Credit can be earned once per sport (2 maximum) by non-PETP students toward satisfcation of the four (4) semester-hour General Education Program requirements in Physical Education.  Physical Education Teacher Preparation (PETP) students may use PEAI skill credit for only one sport, one time as a selective or core (educational Gymnastics) in the category their sport falls under (individual/dual, team).  Swimmers, however, will not be able to use intercollegiate swimming for the Aquatics core.  The one (1) credit Water Safety Instruction (WSI) or Lifeguard Training is the core requirement for Aquatics.

    In addition, the student-athlete must participate in one full season prior to registering for PEAI credit.  This credit does not count toward meeting the academic requirements of full-time status or satisfactory academic progress.  Graded on a Pass/Fail basis.

    NOTE: Students may not use PEAC 194 (Independent Study) for Club Sports or Intramural participation.
