Show 136: Teach to the Person in Your Room, Not the Content in Your Book

Ken EhrmannpowerED Up Podcast

 Mark Housel is a passionate, dedicated, experienced educator.  His career has been in physical education, but his wisdom will impact all teachers.  He provides a thorough analysis of strategies he utilizes in his classroom that each and every teacher can take and apply.
  • Physical education is the only subject that has the ability to affect how people feel each and every day for the rest of their lives.
  • Connection is the content.  If we are not connected to our students, they are not connected to the content.
  • If people think I’m here for exercise, I miss my mark.  I’m here to make better humans who like to move.
  • We need to have an insatiable need to improve and make it better for our students constantly.
  • Take the time to talk to each child, no matter how long it takes.  It is worth it, necessary, and will improve the quality of your instruction.  Most of all, students feel better when they feel it.
  • As colleagues, we can support each other with the relationships we build with each other.
  • Challenge the students to handle situations appropriately and maturely, considering the age level they are at. If we want students to handle more and more on their own.
  • Mark breaks down how he made the transition into teaching health full-time and the pedagogical strategies he brought to the classroom.
