Dover, DE, United States
Delaware State offers a physical education program for the 21st century. We are emerging as national leaders in the innovative “tactical” approach to physical education, a teaching model that organizes instruction around broad skills and strategies rather than individual sports. 

Overview

Our redesigned program also covers recent trends such as movement education and adaptive PE, current methods of assessment and testing, and cultural/gender diversity in physical education.

Students enjoy close mentoring from faculty, opportunities for community involvement, and academic support (as needed) to build classroom skills in reading, writing, and math.

Programme Structure

This program provides for extensive early field experience and a one-semester student teaching experience. Students spend time in real-world schools during the sophomore, junior, and senior years. During the senior year students are placed in a year-long student teaching internship.

Delaware State’s use of the innovative “tactical” approach has created research opportunities for our students. Some have participated in studies to test outcomes and develop assessment methods for the new model. Others have been involved in programs to introduce the tactical approach to veteran PE teachers.
