Physical Education Opportunity Program for Exceptional Learners (PEOPEL): A Teacher's Guide for Secondary Schools. Second Edition.
Irmer, Larry D.; And Others
The instructional guide for PEOPEL (Physical Education Opportunity Program for Exceptional Learners) contains 36 units of instruction for use with handicapped junior and senior high school students. The units contain basic performance objectives which have been task analyzed in an effort to individualize instruction. Each unit is divided into four sections: comments and activity experiences; performance objectives (cognitive, motor, and affective); task analysis; and student classifications (which identifies those handicaps which require activity modifications). The units are in eight areas (sample units in parentheses): aquatics (swimming and water safety); dance (folk/square and movement exploration); gymnastics (parallel bars and tumbling); individual sports (archery and golf); racquet games (badminton and handball); recreational activities (bicycling and bowling); self improvement and body maintenance (nutrition and posture); and team sports (basketball and flag football). Ten appendixes include a unit of instruction profile and sample, a performance objective assessment chart, a quiz on food fads and fallacies, and suggested warm up exercises. Also included is a section on evaluation and student assessment. (DB)
