Should Future Physical Educators Be Skill Tested?
Looking forward into the classroom, how can physical educators who are not competent in a specific sport skill teach that skill and demonstrate it to the class. I am not saying you must be great at every skill but you should be competent enough to demonstrate it to a class and pin-point the correct technique. Inside the classroom students are much more likely to listen and follow the directions of an instructor who is proficient in the skill rather than a teacher who is not.
What is you opinion on this matter? Do you believe future physical educators should be pretested before being allowed into the major?
