“An educational course related of maintaining the human
body through physical exercises”. Physical Education is one of the components
of MAPEH subject. Physical Education is the foundation in our daily lives yet
people tend to forget the importance of it. Physical
Education is also education through the physical. The aim of Physical Education
is to develop students’ physical competence and knowledge of movement and
safety, and their ability to use these to perform in a wide range of activities
associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle. Also with
the nurturing of positive values and attitudes in Physical Education, it will
provide a good foundation for students’ lifelong learning that is why teachers
should teach the students not to take Physical education for granted nor look
at it as “just” Physical Education.
Furthermore, Physical education develops
students’ confidence and generic skills, especially those of collaboration,
communication, creativity, critical thinking and aesthetic appreciation. Collaboration
means to band together with other people, and working together, the 21st-century
learners are touted as social learners.
The adaptation of the program the K-12 curriculum set on
the idea of constructivism and collaborative learning where learners become
responsible in their learning aspect. In this setting, students interact and
integrate with their co-learners to achieve the objectives of every activity.
Since collaborative learning requires learners to link
with each other, students must appreciate
and like one’s self in order to have guts to interact with others. Self-esteem will also affect our trust
in others, our relationships, and our work – nearly every part of our lives.
Positive self-esteem gives us the strength and flexibility to mingle to other
people and take responsibilities for every action. Aside from that students
must also have “faith in one’s self”. It is just imply, a
self-trust or self-confidence in order to have positive self-esteem.
As a new member in the Department of
education, the researcher finds it very interesting and suitable in her station
where most of the students are still in their shells, very innocent, lack of
self-trust and low of self-esteem and as educators we ensure that our students will
grow up relying upon their own abilities, wits and senses, a whole darn bunch. Students
will still seek for our guidance, like we were to our parents, so now we can
mindfully impart our knowledge, skills and expertise to the learners that
encourage their ability to extend trust to themselves.
