This website is intended to be a resource guide for KPE students and instructors, and was designed in fulfillment of CTL1799 Holistic Approaches to Information Technology.
Net/Wall/Target Games is from the Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) model. TGfU is a student-centered approach based on the belief that students are informed learners with prior knowledge and experiences. Educators facilitate learning by using small-sided games and guiding questions to help students appreciate and understand common tactics and transferable skills in the TGfU game categories: net/wall, target, territory, and striking/fielding.
In PRA313 Net/Wall/Target Games, students will examine the tactical commonalities and skills which exist in games that are played “over the net” and “against a wall.” Students will also examine the skills and tactical commonalities which exist in games that involve the use of a target. Games may include volleyball, badminton, pickleball, speedminton, squash, tchoukball, and bocce.
