4. Other comments:
Excellent teacher that taught me and my classmates effective leadership skills and qualities that will be extremely useful to our careers and future education. One of the best professors I've had here at the University of Hawai'i.
Gari was a very supportive teacher who always tried his best to clarify the course topics in class.
Gari-Vic Baxa did a great job of teaching us all the principles of the Dynamics of Student Leadership. Very enjoyable class!
too much handouts
Coach Gari definitely was knowledgeable about this topic and he was able to relate his outside job to the classroom, which gave us a better perspective on leadership. He provided so much resources to help us with projects or class writings and papers. Shows great enthusiasm for his class and made everyone feel comfortable. He's very approachable, so I didn't have a problem asking questions. Overall, this class was really fun and at the same time I learned a lot.

8. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Reading the notes then going out to play was the way to do it. So as we played we policed ourselves, and when one person wasn't sure about a rule others would help.
Learning how to play the sports with the people in my class through a "hands-on" experience.
Team Work
How to play certain sport both competitively as well as with great sportsmanship.
Gari-Vic took the time to handout information about the different sports that were covered. We had a lot of opportunity to practice in each sport.
The hands on experience of learning about specific "invasion" sports.
Learning how sports worked, important critical elements to learn to actually play the game.
9. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
N/A
Participation
How to play sports that are most commonly played, however it is understood because not every person plays those sports even if they are common.
The fact that he did not teach anything about strategies or tactics. I don't believe he understands why specific sports have been selected for this course. There was very little instruction on the skills and nothing on how to go about knowing critical elements or teaching them.
Everything was great.
Sports not commonly played, Speedball, futsol (indoor). Some sports are unnecessary to learn. Use more common sports like basketball, football, soccer (outdoor), ultimate frisbee. Gives students more time to practice and specialize in these sports.

20. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
Class was excellent keep him as the teacher.
Inspire competition
When giving out the study guides for the test do not make it too wordy because it becomes confusing. Keep the study guides short and simple.
By teaching. This felt like; here are some balls, now go have fun. Understand that rewarding students based on irrelevant outcomes (such as who can be the best three point shooter) rather then process is inappropriate at this level. In addition,in my opinion, allowing the use of cleats(which only a small number of students have) is not safe. I was stepped on by a student wearing cleats. It's either everyone if fully geared up for each sport or no one.
Not at all.
Equal opportunity to practice. More small sided games rather than one big game. Gives every student equal opportunity to play.
21. What two or three single words best describe this instructor?
Helpful, nice, knowledgeable

Nice person who was unfortunately placed in a situation for which he is not qualified. The KRS department should take the responsibility.
Youthful & Relaxed.
Knowledgeable, Prepared, Organized

27. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
N/A
By having a teacher who understands the reason for this course and who keeps in mind that it is here to train students for a physical education career.
Not at all.
Less sports. More sports gives less time to practice. Limit the amount of sports played so it gives students more time to learn, practice, and improve sport skills.
