Don Hellison’s Teaching Personal and Social
Responsibility model is known in physical activity settings as a method of
promoting physical activity in a socially responsible way
The Hellison model is built out of 5 levels:
4. Caring and Helping
Respect is having enough control over your own behavior that you do not interfere with the other students rights to learn. Effort is being able to attempt new tasks and persist through difficulties. Self-direction is the process in which students are able to work without direct supervision. Caring and helping is all about showing concern for other people and helping them when in need, and lately transference wis when students incorporate the previous 4 stages into other parts of their lives.
Physical education class
represents an excellent opportunity to instill some of these skills into
students in a more energetic environment.
It utilizes the concepts presented in sports to help students be more
socially aware in their day-to-day activities.
Incorporating this into your PE program could be a fantastic way to
further improve social well being in your school.
