About me

Jamie.jpg

Hello everyone! My name is Jamie. I attended SUNY Cortland for my undergrad and have a bachelor’s of science in education; I also played on the volleyball team. I currently work as middle school physical education teacher in the City of Albany. I am also a high school volleyball coach.

I am a very active person and I love being outdoors (mostly in the warm weather). I enjoy running, walking, swimming and hiking with my dog Ty, who is in the picture with me! Ty is just over 1 year old and a huge goofball! He is Lab/American Bulldog mixed that I rescued when he was just under 6 weeks old! I also love to go kayaking and jet skiing. I enjoy traveling and try to travel as much a possible! I play volleyball year round; I can’t seem to get enough of it.

My Topic

Strategies for teaching large class sizes in physical education. The goal is to obtain maximum participation for students.

Intent of Project

This Mini-Course is a blended course to be used in conjunction with face-to-face professional development for physical education teachers. The intent of this course is to teach educators how to design Physical Education Lessons to provide for maximum participation. Topics that will be covered:

What is Maximum Participation?

Why do we strive to reach Maximum participation? NASPE & NYS Physical Education Standards, Obesity epidemic, use of technology.

What strategies can be used to achieve maximum participation? Routines, consistency, planning, preparedness, etc…

How can educators use these strategies to plan lessons to achieve maximum participation in large (25 or more students) class sizes?

Learning Outcomes

Learners will be able to:

Identify the importance of achieving maximum participation in their classes

Identify strategies that can be incorporated into their daily lessons to achieve maximum participation.

Apply these strategies into their lessons by writing example lesson plans.

Apply their lessons to their classes to achieve maximum participation.

Needs Assessment

Needs Assessment:

Intent: The need for professional development programs to help K-12 physical education teachers learn strategies to teach large class sizes in physical education. The goal in physical education is to achieve maximum participation.

Gathering Information: In order to better understand the need for this course, I surveyed five physical education teachers in my school district varying between grades K-12.The physical education teachers were asked basic questions about their average class sizes, their ability get all students active for the majority of the period. The physical education teachers were also asked about their strengths and weaknesses in teaching large class sizes, as well as how they plan for larger class sizes. They were also asked why they believe they struggle achieving maximum participation in larger class sizes.


Analysis and Revised Intent: In general, teachers expressed that there average class size was around 25-30 students. Teachers expressed that they at times struggle with getting students actively participating for the majority of the class period. They find that they spend a lot of time on discipline and keeping students focused on the task. This is time that instead of students being physically active is now spent on classroom management.

Analysis of the Learner and Context

Performance Objectives

Learners will be able to:

• Identify the importance of achieving maximum participation in their classes.

• Identify strategies that can be incorporated into their daily lessons to provide for success.

• Apply these strategies into their lessons by writing example lesson plans.

• Apply their lessons to their classes to achieve maximum participation.

Task Analysis

Learners will be able to:


1. Create a PowerPoint presentation on the importance of achieving maximum participation in their classes, to be presented at Parent’s Night at their school.


2. Create a lesson plan that explains their specific classroom procedures, routines, rules and expectations for a substitute teacher.


3. Teach a lesson that incorporates the maximum participation strategies.
