ASU offers phys-ed for home-schooled children

Article Published: Sep. 20, 2012 | Modified: Sep. 20, 2012

The Physical Education Program at Appalachian State University is offering its Home School Physical Education Program for the 2012-13 academic year.

Classes meet from 1 to 1:50 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Varsity Gym on campus.

The cost to participate is $30 per student for the full academic year. The fee includes a T-shirt for the student. The program is for children who are 5 to 12 years old, or will turn 5 by Oct. 31.

Classes are taught by junior-level physical education majors in the Physical Education Teacher Education program, in conjunction with a university course in elementary physical education teaching methods.

All lesson planning and instruction is supervised. Classes are offered at three developmental levels: cadets (5-6 years), juniors (7-8 years) and seniors (9-12 years).

Class placement is based on both age and developmental level.

The home-school program is directed by Ben Sibley, who is a licensed K-12 physical education teacher and a professor in the PETE program. Sibley has many years of experience working with children in both academic and recreational settings.

For more information, call Sibley at (828) 262-6300.
