Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta. Office of Instructional Services.
Based on Georgia Department of Education standards, this guide is designed to provide secondary school physical educators with a framework for a comprehensive and adaptable instructional program. The first two chapters explain the philosophy behind the program and suggest implementation procedures within the school physical education department. A chapter on policies gives the point of view of the Georgia Department of Education on administrative and procedural issues such as grading, safety, health services, and interscholastic athletics. In the final chapter, the physical education program content is discussed, divided into general categories: (1) fitness sports; (2) lifetime sports; (3) recreational games; (4) track and field; (5) team sports; (6) outdoor education; (7) rhythms and dance; (8) lead-up games; (9) physical education for the handicapped; (10) adapted physical education; (11) aquatics; (12) combatives; and (13) evaluation, measurement, and assessment. A bibliography of further readings for each chapter is included. Appendices provide a glossary of physical education terms and lists of essential life skills, first aid supplies, physical education films, and noninstructional resources for physical education programs. Also appended are guidelines, standards, state laws, sample forms and letters, and a checklist for evaluating Title IX compliance. (FG)
