This course meets on November 16th from 2:00 - 4:00 pm CST. Registrants will be emailed a link to the course 15 minutes before start time. Each level of the NCDP certification pipeline requires ‘X’ hours of “General Knowledge Coursework”. This course fulfills two hours (of the four or more required) and can be applied to the General Knowledge Coursework requirements at all levels of certification. This course is particularly relevant for the Assistant Moniteur (Level 2) and Moniteur (Level 3) candidates. It is designed to introduce the foundations of group teaching for fencing. The Coaches in Training (CITs) learn about the three parts to a group lesson (warm-up, main part, conclusion). They will learn the basics of a warm-up and how to utilize preparatory exercises, dynamic stretching, games, etc. in the warm-up and to relate a portion of the warm-up to the main lesson. CITs will be introduced to the EDGCC concept (explain, demonstrate, guide, correct, critique and will learn how to develop a learning progression by utilizing EDGCC together with preparatory exercises and technical and tactical paired drills. CITs will also learn different ways to conduct the conclusion of a group class and they will be required to submit a complete lesson plan as the formative assessment.
