Share Your Unit Plan
If you have used one of the models described in Instructional Models for Physical Education in a unit and have a written plan for that unit, please consider sharing it with other teachers and students who may be interested in using the model in their instruction. Please use the instructions, checklist, and email link/address for sending your models units for posting on the website.

Guidelines for Submitting Model-Based Unit Plans
I am looking for good examples of model-based instruction (MBI) unit plans to use as a resource to accompany the third edition of Instructional Models for Physical Education (IMPE-III). This edition features a new website that will include, among other resources for teachers and students, a catalogue of unit plans that are based on the models described in the book:
Personalized System for Instruction
Tactical Games/Teaching Games for Understanding
Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility
If you would like to have your unit plan reviewed for inclusion on the IMPE website, please follow these instructions:
- Be sure that your unit plan accurately represents a model from IMPE-III. Please do not submit a unit that drastically modifies a model and/or combines two or more models.
- Do not submit any photographs of yourself or children, even if the children are not from your school. Photographs without people in them are OK.
- Submit your entire MBI plan in one file, in .pdf, .doc, or .docx format and be sure the materials are in the proper order. You may include a table of contents if that will help the readers.
- Please refer to the checklist on the next page. Your MBI plan MUST include all required materials. If you are lacking any of those, please do not submit your plan for consideration. Of course, it is OK to add any missing parts and then submit your MBI unit.
- Finally, please be aware that I am not looking for “picture perfect” examples of models. I want readers to see examples that represent each model well, but also reflect creative and unique planning by teachers as they use each model in real school settings.
