Instructional Ideas
  • If you are teaching an adaptive physical education course, consider approaching each event individually and spending a week or so developing the skills necessary for participating in that event
Classroom Considerations
  • This is a broad overview, but definitely a great place to start for event planning
  • Nice variety of track and field events
  • Tips provided for how to set up each event
  • Pointers are fairly vague, making the suggestion and strategy difficult to comprehend
