Physical education students increase their ability to create heart-healthy workouts utilizing strategies more commonly seen in academic subjects.
In recent years, teachers have implemented practices that give students more control over how they learn essential subject matter. Teachers have found students more engaged and prepared for class when they employ the flipped classroom technique to present material.
