This subject provides opportunities for students to critique scholarship and policy directions relating to Australian childrens health and movement. Further, students will apply the implications of research to the design of quality, contemporary PDHPE learning experiences for children in K-6 contexts, and communicate their understandings with the profession. In this subject, students explore how current models of health promotion can assist in curriculum integration, inform broader school policy and practices and encourage community engagement aimed at promoting the adoption of healthy, safe and active lives of children, their families and communities. The subject further allows students to investigate the Health and Physical Education curriculum structures, and explore the inclusions, programming and integration possibilities. Using the Australian curriculum proposition of critical inquiry, students investigate the concept of physical literacy and propose strategies to embed the development of physical literacy in Physical Education learning experiences. Quality authentic assessment theories and practices will be critiqued and applied to the design of assessment of health and physical literacy. The subject will further assist students to select and critique the appropriateness of educational resources, including digital technologies, to support the teaching and learning of health and movement concepts, and the development of literacy, numeracy and digital literacy skills.
