Teaching Games For Understanding (TGFU)

Kia Ora
Room 10 have been participating in Teaching Games for Understanding (TGFU). Here is a definition and the Learning Outcomes.

The Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) model fosters tactical awareness and skill instruction.
TGfU is most effective when student-centred and game-centred. It asserts that understanding tactics and strategies of a sport should precede the development and execution of the required skills.
Teaching games for understanding provides students opportunities to:
· take responsibility for their learning,
· transfer understanding about games to other games, and
· apply cognitive development to movement experiences.
