Putting Together A P.E. Demonstration

Aug 17, 2007
It is not necessary that a great deal of extra work be done in putting on a gym demonstration as almost all the numbers are regular parts of the school's physical education program.

The one main thing that contributes more to the success of the demonstration is in the organization of it and in the ease and smoothness in which it goes along. The numbers should not be too long or dragged out so as to tire the audience. This may occur in marching very easily. The numbers should be well rehearsed so that there is no delay and no waiting. This can be accomplished only by practice and insistence on perfect execution and cooperation from participants.

If the school is large enough so that there is more than one physical education teacher then the director should take full charge and designate the duties for all helpers.

If there is a need for music accompaniment contact the music instructor and ask for suggestions and help. It adds a great deal to the program if the school band furnishes the music providing of course the school is large enough. Arrangements will of necessity be worked out by the bandmaster. The band should play slow music while such activities as pyramid building are being done; a fast foxtrot should be played while the tumbling is being done. The piano should be used for novelty dances.

Every student in the physical education classes should take an active part in the demonstration if it is to become successful over a period of years.

Many schools charge a small admission fee to the demonstration but if it is at all possible no charge should be made.

The demonstration should be given wide publicity. The art department can assist with the advertising by making posters, which can be placed throughout the school, and surrounding locality. Printed announcements may be taken home by the students informing the parents of the demonstration. Programs printed in advance may be also taken home. This will give the parent an idea of what the demonstration is like.

A great deal can be said about the value of a physical education demonstration. We know that physical education is an integral part of our present educational setup. We can serve as a means of stimulating a greater desire among the students for a more active program of physical education. It can serve as an incentive to the community, and do much toward developing an interest in physical education within the student body. It can also afford an opportunity for students to appear before an audience where otherwise these students might not have this chance. The demonstration is always good entertainment.

Allow the students to run the program themselves as much as possible with the director of physical education remaining in the background. Managers, costume designers, program directors, publicity chairmen, etc., may be appointed. Every boy and girl should participate.

The demonstration should not last more than two hours. Keep the program moving, do not let it drag. Absolute quiet is essential. The program should begin slowly, gradually working up to a climax, with the more spectacular activities coming toward the close of the program. This will keep the kids interested for the duration of the demonstration.
