Abstract:In order to prepare outstanding teachers, it is essential to provide opportunities for teacher candidates to use the theory learned in the college classroom in a "real physical education class." It is difficult to accomplish this when the university has so many physical education teacher education (PETE) majors that they overwhelm a small school system. This article describes the organization of a practicum experience that satisfied the needs of the PETE students and provided a service to the community designed by the Department of Health, Recreation, and Kinesiology of a university that faced this dilemma.
