Sportsmanship and Losing with Grace

0.00

When I present at conferences, one of the most popular questions that I get is, “How can I teach sportsmanship to my students?” What this question really is asking is, “How do I teach Grace and Courtesy in PE?” I believe a major reason that sportsmanship is so hard to teach to students is because the concept is actually very hard to understand. Most students know how to show good sportsmanship, or know what poor sportsmanship looks like, but few students can articulate what is sportsmanship? At the end of this lesson (with a good debriefing), your lower and upper elementary classes will understand what sportsmanship is.
