So I guess in my 5th grade daughter's PE class, they were not working real hard so he said everyone had to write 2 paragraphs about what PE should be. This was what my daughter wrote: (all her typing, she had to email it to me for me to print it) The principal called her and another girl in and chided them for being too negative. Now, I am kind of negative myself, but in my opinion, the PE teacher asked and she offered some fairly constructive criticism for a 10-year-old. Disclaimer: I work for a publishing company that publishes books for PE teachers on how to teach the "new PE" where the emphasis is on daily physical activities and helping kids find physical activities they enjoy and will actually do later in life. I did not prompt my daughter one bit but ironically we have books on fun warm-ups, fun sports drills or building sports skills in a way that's interesting even for the kids that don't care about basketball per se, and books about how the highly-sport-driven PE teachers can get along with the kids that don't give a rat's ass about sports and still give the kids something of value... BF's opinion is that I should have edited her down. But if that's the way she feels (and it's definitely a viewpoint I can understand!) then I did advise her that her teacher might feel upset, I was thinking angry, but she wanted to say it anyway. I guess his feelings got hurt..?
