Physical Education Competencies.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg. Bureau of Curriculum Services.
In conjunction with a new set of regulations dealing with health and physical education programs in Pennsylvania school districts, effective July 1, 1975, the Department of Education outlines in this report competencies and objectives which school districts are encouraged to use to develop quality programs. The physical education competencies suggested in the report are minimal ones (i.e., what most students should reasonably be expected to do according to their age and physical development by grades three, six, nine, and twelve. The competencies described are of two types: (1) enroute competencies, which are sequential performances leading to basic competencies; and (2) basic competencies, which identify completion of the basic physical education program. The competencies are prepared in such a way as to cover three domains of learning: psychomotor (learning patterns of muscular action for physical performance), cognitive (knowledge germane to physical education and athletics), and affective (attitudes, values, and appreciations). A list of physical education, sport, and dance activities and a bibliography are also included. (LBH)
