Guided Discovery Fits Development of Kids
I can remember taking a PE Theory class in college and the concept of Guided Discovery was taught. It is one concept that impacted my teaching and coaching more than any other.
If you watch youngsters play, you will see they are in a constant state of discovering something new. Something new about themselves, their friends, the way they are playing, what makes them feel good, what makes them feel bad, what is boring, what is exciting, and what matters to them. Much of this determines if they will do “it”, whatever it is that they were doing, again or not.
