PE1046 Peer Partners

Grade 11-12. Instructor approval.

Peer Partner PE supports breaking down knowledge barriers in the field or court.  Junior/Senior students in regular PE can choose to be in the selection process for Peer Partner PE.  This includes daily reciprocal teaching among students with and without an IEP.  Some students have intellectual disabilities as well as communication and behavioral challenges. Students learn they all have more similarities than differences.  Once these relationships are built in Peer Partner PE, partners typically introduce their classmates to their friends. This is a grassroots program of playing and competing together for fitness through physical education and builds respect that benefits all students in our school communities.  As one peer partner has stated, “This class is life changing!”
