The tasks and assignments in this course will give you insights into the skills and attitudes young adolescent students need to acquire in the area of health and physical fitness.

You will have opportunities to consider the growing number of issues that intermediate students face, e.g. , bullying, issues of abuse, sexuality, and peer pressure. This course enables you to explore these concerns and provides you with practical strategies to address them in your teaching.
