Take a coin out of your drawer and think of your father. Now, flip the coin. Let’s do it again. This time, think of your brother, your son, or yourself. At some juncture in your life, the phrase “I’m going to refer you to Oncology,” is likely to cross your road.

Reflect on your grade school PE teachers. Your first thoughts probably consisted of the amount of time the teachers let you play tag. However, the quality of their preparation affects the students in a very interesting way. Read the weekly text article by Mr. Jiling Liu titled "How Do Preservice Teachers Understand Effective Teaching in Physical Education?" "Effective teaching (ET) in physical education (PE) happens when students have positive changes in thinking, behavior, and emotion.
