movement competence to structure thinking, express feelings, and enrich understanding. Through competition and cooperation, learners appreciate the role of rule structures, conventions, values, performance criteria and fair play, and celebrate each other’s varying contributions, as well as appreciating the demands and benefits of teamwork. Additionally, the learner understands how to recognize and manage risk, to fulfill assigned tasks, and to accept responsibility for their own behaviour. They learn how to cope with both success and failure, and how to evaluate performance against their own and other’s previous achievements. It is through these learning experiences that QPE provides exposure to clear, consistent values and reinforces pro-social behaviour through participation and performance. (UNESCO, 2015, p. 14).

Good connection to the history of education through the physical for over 60 years. Physical literacy offers nothing more than confusion as advocated by the article.

A few years back, we were growing frustrated with how people would react when we'd tell them that we taught Physical Education. "Oh, you're a gym teacher" or "How hard can it be to teach dodgeball?" was usually what they would say. And who can blame them? Historically, Physical Educators have been stereotyped as teachers who love to coast: they wouldn't lesson plan, only give good grades to the super athletes, look sloppy at work, etc.
But that's not the case with us and, if you're reading this, its probably not the case with you either. We know that there are amazing Physical Educators out there who are doing everything they can to keep their students engage in their learning. We know that there are Physical Educators who take pride in their work, who work overtime to find new ways to grow as professionals, and who are looking to get rid of that "gym" teacher stereotype once and for all.
