ABSTRACT: A yearly Physical Education (PE) sport teaching arrangement, which includes various teaching
units, is designed towards the objectives of skill learning and physical quality promotion. Considering the
difference among individual students, a personalized PE sport teaching plan is formulated for each student. At
the same time, correspondent teaching modes, methods, and organizing forms are discussed.
In a physical education (PE) spor t teaching class, the
interests, physical qualities and skill levels of different
students are distinct.The uniform teaching plan, teach-
ing mode, teaching method, and organizing form are
not suitable [1,2]. Therefore, a personalized teaching
plan based on the characteristics of each student should
be formulated to maximize the teaching effectiveness,
and proper teaching mode, method, and organizing
form should be adopted [3–7].
Figure 1 presents the unit component of the personal-
ized teaching plan, and Table 1 gives a thirty-six hours
example of yearly teaching plan.
Next contents of all units are introduced.
1.1 Theory unit
There are two sub-units in the theory unit.
(1) Sub-unit 1: including exercise and health, sports
history, theory of skill and tactics, exercise safety,

exercise prescription theory, and the relation
between physical quality and sports.
(2) Sub-unit 2: competition rules, design and evalu-
ation of exercise plans, formulation and evalua-
tion of exercise prescription, relationship between
exercise and profession, nutrition and health care.
1.2 Experience unit
Experience unit includes three modules: (1) Games
related to a specific PE optional course; (2) Skill show;
(3) Exercise experience of different physical qualities.
1.3 Skill unit
There are two sub-units, named junior and senior sub-
units. A personalized skill exercise plan, which is
determined by the current skill and physical quality
levels of a certain student, is carried out in this unit.
As we all know, most skills of a specific sport often
have several learning tips. For example, shooting is one
of the basic basketball skills. There are many patterns
of shooting: free throw, long shot, fadeaway, and pull
shot etc. The difficulties and the effectiveness for phys-
ical quality promotion of these shooting patterns are
different.Therefore, shooting skills could be divided in
details. Students with poor foundation are required to
