Maximize student engagement using Sport Education and Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) instructional models. This presentation will provide practical solutions and resources to create a sustainable unit structure. Event driven Sport Ed units can be exciting and memorable, but an overcomplicated unit can result in an enormous amount of planning; often leading to teacher burnout and decreased student engagement. Adapting TGfU tactics with a simplified Sport Ed framework can help to provide dynamic units that can be repeated without being overcomplicated.
