Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) Approach. The Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) approach was developed by researchers at Loughborough University in the United Kingdom to tap into children’s inherent desire to play.

Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) Approach

Bunker and Thorpe (1982) developed TGfU around the concept of teaching kids games by playing games. Butler et al. (2008) identified six Basic TGfU Concepts: Teach games through games.Break games into their simplest format - then increase complexity.Participants are intelligent performers in games.Every learner is important and is involved.Participants need to know the subject matter.Need to match participants’ skill and challenge.

Recent approaches to TGfU have advocated for a thematic approach to teaching games. Curriculum Resources - TGfU.Info. School Sport Victoria. School Sport Victoria. Home. Curriculum Resources.
