Examine the history of games, play, sport and physical education using a chronological approach to discover their connection to Western thought and culture. The course takes a constructivist approach that is based on scholarly research using both primary and secondary sources, yet is made relevant, applicable and practical by being project-centered. Teachers are given freedom to build their learning experience around their own unique background, interests and location.  

NOTE: Required textbook must be purchased separately.
